Twinkling Lullabies & Songs of Love and Love Gone Wrong....

As part of Ljova's Sunday@5 residency at Barbes, Inna Barmash is bringing back her Yiddish Lullabies & Love Songs project, featuring Lev 'Ljova' Zhurbin on viola, Shoko Nagai on accordion and piano, Dmitry Ishenko on bass, and a special guest, Sam Sadigursky, on clarinet, with other special friends joining in!

The program explores art songs and folk songs, including rarely heard treasures of old Soviet era anthologies of songs collected in the shtetls of Ukraine in the 1920s and art songs by Soviet composers set to Yiddish poetry.

About Inna Barmash
Inna first started singing in Yiddish back in her home city of Vilnius, Lithuania as a child in the late 80s. After immigrating to the US with her family in 1991, Inna has continued singing in Yiddish, Russian and other languages with numerous klezmer and folk groups in the NY area. She is the vocalist of the chamber folk band Ljova & the Kontraband and co-leads the gypsy dance party band Romashka.
