Biography

AK and Her Kalashnikovs
"This is a unique and original musical ensemble. There is the diverse instrumentation --tinwhistles, accordions, violins, stand up bass, a variety of guitars, percussion that thinks it’s a Ringling Brothers Circus.
There are the Kalashnikovs, intense, virtuosic and inventive. And rhythmically tight as a drum.
The repertoire is a collection of sharp left turns and foreign tongues. From Gypsy love songs to Russian lullabies to Serbian ballads to Spanish Copla to French pop to what sounds suspiciously like rock n roll.
But the heart and soul is AK herself, Alissa Kueker. Her voice is, by turns, angelic and devilish, profoundly serious and as playful as the first days of love. It’s rich rough coloratura contralto caresses and seduces and, when necessary, belts like a WWF Cage Fight. You want to hear her; you want to hear AK & The Kalashnikovs, trust me."
