Twinkling Lullabies & Songs of Love and Love Gone Wrong.
Vilna-born vocalist Inna Barmash is bringing back her YIddish Lullabies & Love Songs project to Barbes, featuring  Lev 'Ljova' Zhurbin on fadolín, Shoko Nagai  on accordion and piano, Dmitry Ishenko on bass and Zisl Slepovitch on clarinet.  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.
Inna Barmash 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.

The "Yiddish Lullabies & Love Songs" recording was made possible through a grant by the BluePrint Fellowship project of COJECO, funded by the UJA-Federation of New York and Genesis Philanthropy Group..
