Polina Shepherd is an internationally renowned performer, bringing traditional Yiddish songs up to date with passion and a haunting soul deeply rooted in east European Jewish folk sound.

Lorin Sklamberg is lead singer of the Grammy-winning Klezmatics, a leading exponent of Yiddish song and traditional Jewish vocal techniques with a crystalline, expressive sound.

Daniel Kahn is a Detroit-born, Germany-based troubadour and translator who combines Yiddish, English, German, and Russian in a radical mixture of Klezmer, lyrical folk ballads, dark cabaret, and political punk.

Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell is a classically-trained vocalist, composer, and arranger specializing in Yiddish song, ranging from classic art song  to eclectic cafe repertoire.

Judy Bressler is a third-generation performer from the family of Yiddish theater luminaries Menashe Skulnick and Lucy Gehrman. She has been a leading voice in the revival and continuation of Yiddish music and a founding member of the Klezmer Conservatory Band.

A Besere Velt – A Better World – is proud to be a “voice” for justice. This 80-member community chorus of the Boston Workers Circle Center, conducted by Derek David, weaves the heartache and irrepressible idealism of Yiddish folk music into a vision of justice and humanity for the 21st century.
