Figelin: Three Women, Two Cultures, One Love

North German and Yiddish Folk Music for Violins and Voices

Figelin is an exciting new collaboration of three internationally acclaimed violinists.
Deborah Strauss is a pioneering Yiddish performer and educator who has been at the
forefront of the international klezmer and Yiddish music scene for more than 20
years. Vanessa Vromans is one of the most talented musicians of the new klezmer
generation. Originally from Australia and now based in Berlin, she is admired both
for her mastery of traditional klezmer style and for pushing its boundaries through
improvisation and new compositions. Born in Berlin, Vivien Zeller is a mesmerizing
performer who has dedicated her career to the revitalization of North German folk
music. Together with the band “Kwart” she was honored with the prestigious German
RUTH World Music Prize.
