Yair Dalal & Lenka Lichtenberg
Lullabies From Exile is a collaboration between oud and violin virtuoso Yair Dalal and vocalist Lenka Lichtenberg, that unites the Jewish musical traditions of Babylonia together with that of Eastern European -- two branches of the same tree that grew in separate directions for more than two millennia. The enchanting music of Lullabies from Exile arches from the intricate rhythms of ancient Iraq to the soulful sounds of Bessarabia.
Baghdad-born and now living in Tel Aviv, Yair Dalal has released a dozen albums and performed in some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall. A native of Prague, Lenka Lichtenberg is a “force of nature within Canada’s world music scene” (Nicholas Jennings, Penguin Eggs). Her seven albums include Songs for the Breathing Walls, recorded in abandoned Czech synagogues; a 2012 Canadian Folk Music Award winner.
