Olena came to her first lindy lesson in 2011 without any idea what it is. It turned out to be a source of inspiration and for long years. She started DJing two years later even though knew little to nothing about swing music and history. It began as an experiment and led to the creation of a blog about jazz history and lyrics (it’s in Ukrainian though). She treats djing as an emotional job that requires empathy and connection on top of knowing what your library is about.
