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.
