Marina Kalmykova

flexible: from raspy, sultry alt to clear soprano

Voice Description

warm and deep for narrations, sexy and fun for commercials, smooth and professional presentations, flexible and characteristic for audio books and radio plays. As I am not only a professional actress, but also a professional singer, I can do recording of songs - from deep alto-voice to a clear soprano. I can also speak fluently accent-free German and English. Recording in French, Spanish, Italian and Latvian would be no problem for me, providing I have a written text at hand. I can change an accent from very fine to a strong one.
