  Anna Bo is born in Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria, in the family of an artist and a pianist.

Her grandfather was a multi-instrumentalist, conductor, composer and co-founder of the local opera house. She started playing piano around 5 and had her first award at 6. Growing up between her mother’s rehearsals with a soprano and female choir, her father’s studio and backstage at the opera house had a huge impact on her musical taste and forming as an artist.

Later on she started composing music and has been awarded by the Bulgarian Union of Composers, 2nd International Festival for Young Composers – Quito, Ecuador, 7th International Festival for Young Performers and Composers – Lodz, Poland. Anna has piano pieces published in the ‘Compositions of children from all over the world’ print edition.

While studying in the National Music Academy ‘P.Vladigueroff’ in Sofia, Bulgaria, she started playing keyboards with bands, ranging from doom-metal, industrial to wave and gothic as genres. First solo recorded song ‘Sister Of The Moon’ draw the media attention, not without the help of being released in a compilation by ‘Rhythm’ music magazine. Unfortunately, a further release became impossible at the time, due to unspoken censorship in the country towards artists, recording their songs in English.

After a hiatus, brought by living abroad, while searching for new ways to create music, Anna Bo has settled in Sofia again and started working in the field of sound design. Meanwhile she was approached by Proletkult Records (UK) and signed for the release of an EP, due out by the end of 2017.
