Sanda Weigl

Romanian-born Sanda Weigl started her career in East Germany as a rebellious Jewish teen-age punk-rock singer who, after publicly denouncing Russia’s invasion of Czechoslovakia, was sentenced to two years forced labor in an East Berlin factory and expelled to the West. She moved to Berlin to work in theater and ended up in New York where, as she puts it, she finally found her roots. Her current repertoire hopscotches between the Romanian gypsy songs of her childhood, Kurt Weill, medieval German music, Tom Waits and a host of various projects. Tonight, she will draw from her album "Gypsy in a Tree" (released on Barbès Records almost ten years ago.)

"This music arrives out of East German Jewish melodies mixed with Weimar-period Berlin cabaret. It is full of life, love, lust, family — all those things that are good." — C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

With Shoko Nagai on piano + accordion and Stormu Takeishi on bass.
