These include venues such as Herodus Atticus Athens, Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam, WDR Funkhaus Köln and festivals like Cello Biënnale Amsterdam, Athens & Epidaurus Festival and Classic Clash Festival. The International Press think Billboard USA & Japan, The Strad, Revolver, Classic fm and Kerrang!, has praised him as a hauntingly beautiful creative, extremely skillful with an inspiring tone whose interpretations will take you to exciting mind trips. He has caught several times the attention of famous artists (reckon Billy Cox of original Hendrix band, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Jon Batiste of the Late Show and Queen) Nina weaves the threads of a vibrant classical musical identity with the contrasting fibers of a more underground artistic musical character, drawing inspiration from urban aesthetics, street art and street fashion. He distills and infuses the essence of each of these sources into the creation of his music, establishing himself as a modern sound alchemist. Nina’s instrument is a modern acoustic Urs W. Mächler cello endorsed to his name.
