LJOVA (Lev Zhurbin) was born in 1978 in Moscow, Russia, and moved to New York with his parents in 1990. Today, he stands at the forefront of his generation as the premiere bridge between the world's musical cultures. He divides his time between performing as a violist in diverse groups ranging from string quartets to jazz combos and gypsy bands, studying and arranging world music for the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and the Kronos Quartet, and composing original music for film, TV, theatre and the concert stage.

Ljova is the author of more than 70 compositions for classical, jazz, and folk ensembles, as well as scores to two features and over a dozen short films. He is co-founder of Mediant Music, a new company specializing in music for advertising and media. Recently, Ljova was one of six composers invited to participate in the Sundance Institute's Film Composers Lab.
