Sklamberg and the Shepherds brings together three renowned performers
of traditional Eastern European Jewish music: Lorin Sklamberg,
cofounder and lead singer of the Klezmatics; clarinetist/composer
Merlin Shepherd, a uniquely innovative force in the klezmer
renaissance; and Polina Shepherd, a virtuosic
vocalist/pianist/composer originally from Siberia. This fresh
collaboration blends traditional and newly composed Yiddish and
Russian song with klezmer and southern Mediterranean music.
Lorin, Polina and Merlin represent three nations although their
families come from very close geographical locations. At the end of
the 19th Century, Merlin's great-grandparents emigrated from Ukraine
and Romania to escape pogroms and seek a better world in Europe.
Lorin's ancestors emigrated from a small town in Ukraine to the United
States. Polina's grandparents escaped from the Sho'ah by fleeing from
Kiev and Odessa to Siberia. Influenced by several cultures and
maintaining the styles, they play original and traditional material
with freedom and spontaneity.
