Psoy Korolenko & Polina Shepherd have both been at the forefront of the international Ashkenazi
music scene for many years. After a mini tour in NY in 2015 & a show at the conference Mediating a
New Cold War in the Digital Age at Dartmouth College in 2016, the duo is now coming to the West
coast w/ a new program The Wondrerers. The new collaboration defines original & fresh repertoire
based on their original Yiddish and Russian songs as well as multilingual interpretations & translations.
They create a balance between serious listening and popular music, avant-garde & classics, folklore,
chamber music, theater song & cabaret, reflecting the multi-cultural and international nature of diverse
world & Jewish cultures. Rooted in Russian and Yiddish folk, their multilingual journey starts in the
Steppes and the Shtetl, then takes us to the new world and other planets.
