Misha Alperin is a Ukrainian pianist and composer. He was born in the Kamenez Podolsky, Ukraine, grew up in Eastern Moldavia, found his musical direction in Moscow, and is currently based in Oslo. He has consistently turned this geographical isolation from the recognized centres of the jazz "scene" to his advantage, developing a very personal music that views jazz history in the light of his investigations of, for example, the Russian and Romanian folk musics of the Moldavian region and his family's Jewish musical heritage.
