Vira Lozinsky has released a new album of Yiddish songs Distant stars – Vayte shter. Lozinsky is a leading voice among a new generation of singers in the international Yiddish music scene.
This disc is the product of collaboration with her father, Yiddish poet Michael Felsenbaum, and pianist Regina Dricker. It is dedicated to the Bessarabian landscape of her youth – a place where for hundreds of years Moldavians, Jews, Gypsies and other national groups have lived in close proximity with one another.
Distant stars – Vayte shter reflects the cultural influence on Jewish song of these diverse national groups.
