Line up

  • Vira Lozinsky (Singer)


Vira Lozinsky is one of the leading voices among a new generation of Yiddish singers .She has performed at theatres and festivals throughout Israel, Europe, North and South America. Her debut CD "Vayte Shtern" has been nominated for the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) / Best World Music album.

Vira was born in 1974 in Beltz, Moldova (Bessarabia), to a family of Yiddish artists. Her father Michael Felsenbaum founded the Yiddish theater of Beltz in 1989 and is a prominent figure in the post-Soviet Yiddish revival.
Well known as a poet and playwright, he has written many of the songs in Vira's repertoire. Vira's mother Fania was also a prolific performer and singer of Yiddish and Romanian songs throughout the 1970's and 1980's.
Vira started playing the violin at the age of six, but her real passion was always singing. From the age of 13 until her immigration to Israel in 1991 she sang in the Beltz Yiddish Theater and also performed solo concerts throughout the former USSR.

After immigrating to Israel at age 16 she earned her BA in Musicology and Yiddish literature at Bar-Ilan University. In 2000 she graduated with honors from the vocal program of Israel's prestigious Rimon school of Jazz & Contemporary Music. Perhaps the most significant event in her career occurred in 2002 when she met the great Yiddish singer Nechama Lifshitz, who has since remained her teacher and mentor. An enchanting
performer in every way, Vira's mellifluous alto voice is powerful, warm, expressive, and pure. Her unique repertoire includes new material written especially for her, as well as Yiddish folk songs, songs of Bessarabian, Romanian and Polish Jewish poets, and of classical and modern Yiddish poets .

Vira Lozinsky has worked and recordered with international artists and groups as Raanana Symphonette Orchestra, "Beyond the Pale", "Konsonans Retro", Leopold Kozlowski and many others.
Her performances were broadcast on Arte TV , Israel's channel 2 and radio channles CBC (Canada), Deutsche Welle (Germany) and others.
