Lorin Sklamberg

Lorin Sklamberg is lead singer of the Grammy winning Klezmatics, a leading exponent of Yiddish song and traditional Jewish vocal techniques.
The legendary music critic Robert Christgau has described Lorin Sklamberg’s voice as »transcendent, ethereal and sensual«. Since the creation of the Klezmatics, Sklamberg continued searching for his own voice in a number of disciplines. He has worked for the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research for almost 25 years, currently as its Sound Archivist. For 14 years he was the coordinator of KlezKamp: The Yiddish Folk Arts Program, and co-founded Living Traditions.
Lorin can be heard on about 50 CDs, and also composes and performs for film, dance, stage and circus, produces recordings, and teaches and lectures from Sao Paulo to London, from Paris to Kiev and St. Petersburg…
