Svetlana is a critically acclaimed "outstanding" (Wall Street Journal) vocalist from New York and a leader of the New York based swing band, The Delancey Five ("NYC Darlings" Time Out). Svetlana's shows transport the audiences to the carnival of sound, seamlessly moving from sophisticated and sultry retrospection to a rowdy joyous dance party.

Svetlana's album Night at the Speakeasy (produced by Grammy Award winning Guy Eckstine) has been released to critical acclaim on Origin Records, charted on Jazz Radio charts (was among "most added" in Jan 2016) and was critic's choice for Top 10 2016 albums (Classicalite, Vents Magaizne).
