3. Anastasia was a semi-acoustic folk punk band from Malmö, Sweden, lead by singer/guitarist Lasse Qvint, with Dekel Carlström (drums), Loffa Persson (bass), Daniel Bexell (accordion, guitar, mandolin, piano), and Anette Mårtensson (violin). The band was active during the 1990s and released, among other things, the album "Kickar & Kaos". Anastasia's music is a sort of mix between punk, sped-up singer/songwriter tunes, and Swedish folk music, a mix that was very popular in Sweden for a brief period in the 90s, with bands like Traste Lindéns Kvintett, Perssons Pack, and Bombyces Bryggeri.
4. And finally we have Anastasia Rizikov, going simply by Anastasia professionally. She is a classical pianist from Canada, born December 8, 1998. Per Renée Silberman at The Beat Magazine, January 21, 2014, Anastasia is an extraordinary virtuoso, with abundant technical prowess. Her albums include Reminiscent and others.

Note: "Anastasia" is often mixed up to the female pop-singer Anastacia.
