Bio

Vira Lozinsky, one of today's outstanding Yiddish singers,blends her singing with a variety of musical styles from East European folk (Klezmer, Gypsy, Romanian, Russian) to South American Tangos. An enchanting performer in every way, Vira’s mellifluous alto voice is powerful, warm, expressive, and pure.

Vira was born in 1974 in Beltz, Moldova (Bessarabia), to a family of Jewish artists. Vira started playing the violin at the age of six, but her real passion was always singing. As a child she was exposed to the cultures and musical styles of different ethnic groups living in Moldova like Moldovan/Romanians, Jews, Roma, Russians and others.
After moving to Israel at age 16 she earned her BA in Musicology and Yiddish literature at Bar-Ilan University. In 2000 she graduated with honors from the vocal program of Israel’s prestigious Rimon school of Jazz & Contemporary Music. Vira Lozinsky has performed at theatres and festivals throughout Israel, Europe, North and South America.
Her performances were broadcast on Arte TV , Israel's channel 2 and radio channles CBC (Canada), Deutsche Welle (Germany) and others.
