Eastern European Yiddish Music is an important part of the Jewish culture, which has almost been wiped out by the Nazi regime during WW2. Nowadays this musical genre is making a comeback worldwide. Roman Grinberg is a Vienna based artist who devotes himself to the Yiddish language and Jewish music with exceptional passion. Deeply rooted in the music of his ancestors, the artist, congenially complemented by his partner Sasha Danilov, performs new, contemporary arrangements of popular and well-known music, but also his own compositions of Yiddish songs and Klezmer Music.
