This disc is the product of collaboration with her
father, Yiddish poet Michael Felsenbaum, and
pianist Regina Dricker. It is dedicated to the
Bessarabian landscape of her youth – a place
where for hundreds of years Moldavians, Jews,
Gypsies and other national groups have lived in
close proximity with one another.

|Vayte Shtern - Distant Stars
|Beyond The Pale - Postcards
|Critically-acclaimed and award-winning, Beyond the Pale is one
of the most exciting ensembles in the Canadian folk, roots, and
world music scenes.
The new album traverses a vast and exotic musical landscape -
from raucous dance rhythms and funky grooves to complex
instrumental showpieces with intricate chamber music-like
aesthetics. Postcards is a trail-blazing redefinition of
contemporary East European folk/roots music, bound by no one
idiom but shaped by many.
Vira Lozinsky is joining the band on three tracks of Yiddish
vocals on original arrangements of songs penned by her father
Yiddish poet Michael Felsenbaum.
Wunderweg - Wondrous Way
In her second disk Vira Lozinsky blends Yiddish lyrics written by her father, Mikhoel
Felsenbaum, with a variety of musical styles like Romanian, Gypsy, Russian Romances,
Tango, Waltz and others. The music is arranged and performed by Emil Aybinder ,
accordion virtuoso, former concertmaster of the “Jok” and “Meorica” Moldovian folk music
ensembles, director of “Hora Yerushalayim” ensemble.
