She will  pull at your heartstrings with songs of life in the shtetl, songs of  love and suffering,and folk songs that were sung to her as a child. It  is an honor to share such gems and try to inspire the love of Yiddish  music and our rich culture with a wider audience. Lomir Zingn a Yiddish  Lid!
