Louisa Lyne & Di Yiddishe Kapelye – A Farblondzhete Blondinke (Maestro Music MMCD004, 2015)
Malmö-based vocalist and composer Louisa Lyne has focused most of her career on Yiddish songs and their history. Her album A Farblondzhete Blondinke (A Blonde Astray) features traditional and original songs and instrumental compositions. She performs with her regular band, Di Yiddishe Kapelye. The musical arrangements are closer to chamber classical music than klezmer folk music featuring strings, grand piano and accordion.
Louisa Lyne has a fascinating vocal style that goes with the exquisite fiddles, guitar and piano instrumentation.
The lineup on A Farblondzhete Blondinke includes Louisa Lyne on vocals; Edin Bahtijaragic on accordion, cajón, vibraphone, glockenspiel; Robin Lyne on guitar and backing vocals; Irina Binger on violin; Martin Eriksson on double bass; Anders Thorén on grand piano; Anna Thorstensson on cello and backing vocals.
