Dmitry Kalinin, was born in Moscow in 1978. He began to play the balalaika at the age of 7 and now he is one of the most recognized professional balalaika performers in Russia.

He has won the most prestigious All-Russian and International competitions, such as "North Cup" ("Kubok Severa", Cherepovets, 2004) and VI-th "V. Andreev" (Tver, 2001) and gained enthusiastic response from the audience. Dmitry graduated from the Gnessins Russian Academy of Music in 2003, where he as well completed post-graduate course under the guidance of Professor V. Boldyrev (honored artist of Russia). In 1997 Dmitry Kalinin was invited as soloist to the Academic Orchestra of Russian Folk Instruments of the Russian State TV and Radio Broadcasting Company (Chief-conductor – People’s artist of the USSR N. Nekrasov).

Accompanied by this glorified orchestra he has recorded a number of compositions of various genres and forms for Russian radio and TV channel "Culture" written by A.Varlamov, N. Budashkin, A. Shalov, A. Danilov. His interpretation of emotional and hard Marchakovsky’s recital was the revelation. Dmitry often performes as a soloist with Ossipov Balalaika Orchestra, the folk orchestra "Moscow" (conductor - I. Gromov), V.Petrov`s orchestra of the Gnessin academy and other orchestras. He has collaborated with many conductors such as V. Fedoseev, S. Skripka, P. Sorokin and V. Ryabtsev…
