Dear friends!


This year, as part of two projects (namely the Hamburg Klezmer Band, and my solo project with my original music "Di Naye Yidishe Melodyes"), I am listed in the cultural program of the Central Council of Jews in Germany. This means that if you are a member of the Jewish community in any German city, you can try to influence the leadership of your community so that they can apply to the Central Council of Jews in Germany for holding concerts of one (or both) of my projects in your community in during 2023.


So if you want me to come with a concert to your community, please contact the leadership of your local Jewish community!

Dear friends!


On February 24, 2022, Russia, the country in which I was born, committed a terrible crime, vilely and without the slightest reason, attacking a neighboring democratic state, Ukraine.

As a former Russian citizen, I can't and don't want to remain silent. I am against the criminal war unleashed by Vladimir Putin and Russia against Ukraine. I stand with Ukraine.
