Evgenija Chanchalova (known as Geni Gen) is a Macedonian singer-songwriter and a classical pianist based in The Netherlands.

Since 2020, during her jazz studies in Codarts, Rotterdam, Geni has been working on her first singles and an EP album which will be released in the near future. She has been influenced by a variety of singers such as Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, and Ray Charles, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Another major influence is classical and jazz music because of her schooling, creating a mix from soulful sounds with hints of blues, to rock riffs with hints of jazz.
