”Chubby, Smart, Blonde, SWF 5’4” seeks opportunity to fall in love, decide not to get married or have children, reveal all closeted skeletons, become truly intimate, build intense mutual appreciation, decide we need more than the other person can give, part amicably, and booty call each other for the next three years. Or not. What do you want?”

Dashenka and her music were born in Moscow, Russia and is now living and thriving in Portland, Oregon. This music is a little boat. Get in, take off your shoes if you are wearing any, and go away for a little while. Though a bit foggy and dreamy, the undulations will eventually bring you back to shore.
