About

THE WOMAN ASTRONAUT is an original concept album, presented in a cinematic orchestral-electronica style, telling the story of the life journey of an astronaut: adolescence-homeland, young adult, and maturity. Penka Kouneva is a female composer living in Los Angeles who has worked for Hollywood's greatest composers on some of the biggest film scores. Her latest project is her most exciting adventure and it's all her own! THE WOMAN ASTRONAUT is an epic musical journey that explores the infinity of space and the reaches of the human experience itself -- ambition, perseverance, love and destiny. This unique album features a stunningly talented group of musicians, including some of the greatest soloists in Los Angeles.
