Vira Lozinsky & Emil Aybinder Ensemble
We end our week-long celebration of Jewish Music with one of today’s outstanding Yiddish singers. An enchanting performer in every way, Vira’s mellifluous alto voice is powerful, warm, expressive, and pure. Her unique repertoire of new compositions and traditional favourites is rendered in a variety of musical styles from East European folk (Klezmer, Roma, Romanian, Russian) to South American tangos. She is joined by the powerhouse ensemble of Emil Aybinder with whom she captured Grand Prize at the 2012 International Jewish Music Competition in Amsterdam.
Vira Lozinsky was born in Beltz, Moldova to a family of Yiddish artists who immigrated to Israel when Vira was 16. She is a graduate of Bar-Ilan University and the Rimon School of Jazz & Contemporary Music. Celebrating and preserving Yiddish music in the 21st century, Vira has released three solo CDs and has toured in festivals worldwide. www.viralozinsky.com
