    Gargana’s ruling planet is the Moon, the planet of dreams and human emotions. Dominated by the element water, Gergana carries an incredible force that helps her to cope with all the difficulties standing in her way.

      "Where there is will there is a way," Gergana likes to say and she truly believes that fate favors the brave. She likes challenges and faces them with courage. She seems a gentle and kind person, but inside she is firm and consistent in her decisions.

    The violin is an integral part of her body and her life. The Music School of Pleven; The Academy "Pancho Vladigerov" in Sofia, Youth European Philharmonic Orchestra in Germany, the specialization with Professor Peter Daniel, the orchestra of Bulgarian National Radio have brought knowledge and experience that she successfully applied in an impressive recordings activity. She participated in the creating of Hollywood movie soundtracks including "The Punisher" with John Travolta and "Les Choristes" with Gerard Jugnot and Jean-Baptiste - Maunier. Gerry is the most preferred (and invited) violinist among popular Bulgarian artists. She made recordings for Grafa, Lili Ivanova, Mariana Popova, Donnie, Irina Florin, Elitsa & Stundji and others.

    Gerri`s beauty and talent harmonize with a flexible mind and intellect. A natural fashion taste corresponds in an interesting way with a passion for cooking. Her charm is an incredible mix of elegance and finesse, determination and perseverance. Energetic and hardworking, the ambitious mother of two (sunny princesses - Maya and Neda) - Gerry balances skillfully between family commitments and artistic engagements.

    Her success formula lies in the words of Bon Jovi: ”success is falling nine times and getting up ten “. She is able to cope with the challenges thanks to the help of her family and especially to the wonderful man beside her who strongly encourages and supports her in all her endeavors.

    Gerry, who was the engine of another successful quartet , today is a leader and manager of the new formation, called DESTINY. She is convinced that true musical performance and a good show are only possible if made with friends and followers. So she and her team enjoy the full support of their Italian producers - the composer Maurizio Abeni (who provided quartet " Destiny " with exclusive rights to his music), the composer Alessandro Sartini and the "Oscar" winning recording engineer Marco Streccioni.
