Psoy Korolenko been referred to as a ”wandering scholar” and an ”avant-bard”. His multilingual one-person cabaret-esque show balances folk and klezmer music, free-style poetry and intellectual comedy. Sings in English, Russian, Yiddish, French, also recently Portuguese (Brazillian rock in new renderings and Russian translations).
Psoy & Polina have a Duo project, The Stranniki, which defines original repertoire based on their original Yiddish & Russian songs as well as multilingual interpretations & translations. They create a balance between serious listening and popular music, avant-garde & classics, folklore, chamber music, theatre song & cabaret, reflecting the multi-cultural and international nature of diverse world & Jewish cultures. Rooted in Russian and Yiddish folk, their multilingual journey starts in the Steppes and the Shtetl, then takes us to the new world and other planets.
Join us for a tiny snippet of The Stranniki’s current internal journeys.
