Psoy Korolenko & Polina Shepherd have both been at the forefront of the international Ashkenazi music scene for many years. After a mini tour in NY in 2015, the duo is now coming to the West coast w/ a new program The Wondrerers – The Stranniki.
The new collaboration defines original & fresh repertoire based on their original Yiddish and Russian songs as well as multilingual interpretations & translations. They create a balance between serious listening and popular music, avant-garde & classics, folklore, chamber music, theater 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.
