An outspoken, iconic rock star, founder and longtime leader of the legendary Russian rock band “Time Machine”, singer and composer Andrey Makarevich returns to the US with a new program, titled “Yiddish Jazz.”
Drawing a parallel between “Klezmer” music, created by Jewish immigrants, and traditional big-band jazz, Andrey Makarevich along with renowned jazz vocalists Diana Polenova, Elizaveta Boretz, Irina Rodiles and Polina Kasyanova will perform well-known favorites in Yiddish, English and Russian, backed by a live band of internationally renowned jazz musicians. In the second half of the program, fans will hear a full set of a re-imagined selection of the greatest hits and old time classics performed by Makarevich.
