Description

Happy New Year, dear friends!

Wishing you a fulfilling and healthy year - a year where we manage to remain calm yet alert and engaged, holding on to our collective sanity! Easier said than done, to be sure. Yet a new year does bring renewed hope. And...then there's music. Good for the heart and soul...

CONCERT on Sunday,  January 28, 2018
If you are in Toronto, I’d love to invite you to 
the venerable Hugh's Room Live. I am honoured and delighted to take part, with Aviva Chernick, David Wall and Justin Gray, in Ken Whiteley's now legendary Sunday “Gospel" Brunch concert. This marks my first work with Ken since 1998 when he had produced my very first album. Ken is one of Canada’s most respected roots musicians: you will be singing along before you know it, enjoying his inimitable stage presence and multiple talents. I will be offering my Hebrew liturgy and Yiddish compositions, plus some brand new material for Shabbat!

2017 was a year of international performances for me, touring 3 different projects with concerts in France (Alsace),  Germany (Yiddish Summer Weimar), Czech Republic, Israel (Abu Ghosh Vocal Music Festival) and Washington, D.C. (the Mutual Inspirations Festival at the very welcoming Czech Embassy there). There are tours shaping up also for 2018, in the U.S. in March, and the Czech Republic in April. 

My new album of Czech folk songs MASARYKout on the U.K. label ARC Music just in time to catch the 2018 wave of centennial celebrations by Czech people everywhere, charted for several weeks this fall on Canadian Earshot at #1 (International Music charts). That was quite amazing to see! Here's a video of one of the tracks if you haven't seen it yet: https://youtu.be/bsg5nJvj_tk   Launching it in Prague in November, in Divadlo Semafor where I performed as a kid - with Jiri Suchy, who helped launch the album, a stellar group of my Czech colleagues, and David Buchbinder as a guest, was a joy I cannot even put in words. MASARYK will launch in Canada on May 17 at Hugh's Room Live, double-billing with the extraordinary group Dalava.
