Sasha Lurje was born in Riga, Latvia, and has been singing since she was three years old. Since 2003 she has been researching traditional Yiddish singing style and repertoire, investigating secular and religious vocal materials. With her band Forshpil, she is developing a new style of Yiddish music by integrating the traditional sound into modern context. She coordinates the song teaching at the annual Yiddish Summer Weimar festival, the world centre of learning for Yiddish song and Klezmer music.
Sasha is in the UK to teach at Kleznorth festival in Derbyshire on 21-23 March, and will also be touring Scotland with world-renowned musicians Michael Alpert and Craig Judelman - St Andrews (Thursday 12th March), Edinburgh (Saturday 14th March), Glasgow (Sunday 15th March), Arran (Tuesday 17th March).
