Galina Dimova was born in 1967 in Chirpan, Bulgaria. She started piano at the age of seven and was accepted at the Christina Morfova Music Lyceum for gifted children.

Thereafter, she continued studying at the State Academy of Music in Sofia, specialising in chamber music and piano accompanying.
She has played extensively both as a soloist and an accompanist, having an unusually wide and inspiring repertoire. In 1994, she formed The Classical Trio with two ex State Academy students with whom she performed in various countries and released three compact discs. Also noteworthy is that Galina collaborated with video artist Yiannos Economou as a composer and performer in two short films.
