​Yiddish Journey

Lenka Lichtenberg & Fray
 

Join Lenka and Fray to celebrate their new release Yiddish Journey. This electrifying band and their special guests will present a hour of Lenka’s new compositions and traditional favourites. Their world music style embraces Indian, Middle Eastern and Brazilian sounds, yet is remarkably infused with Yiddishkayt! It is infectious live energy and soaring lyrical drama as they explore Yiddish roots and global sounds that are at once contemporary and timeless.
