Canadian acoustic world roots music born from the rich Toronto soundscapes of Eastern Europe, Middle East, India and Brazil.
"Absolutely exquisite..." Karen Gordon, CBC Radio 1
“Three new CDs in three years made in three different regions of the world, garnering at least as many awards and even more nominations. Toronto-based Lenka Lichtenberg has been on creative fire. (Her) work forms cultural connections, and it greatly expands upon the dialogue. Consider only her most recent recordings, all of which bring together top-notch musicians from around the world to create music that blends multiple languages, cultures, melodies and rhythm, and cross temporal, cultural and geographic borders…. (She is) at home in many languages and musical styles, and every release highlights her talents, and those of the musicians with which she works…(her recordings are) written and performed with a confidence and skill that is remarkable.., she seems like someone who will continually push herself to keep growing, experimenting in each new project.” Cynthia Ramsay, The Jewish Independent, Vancouver, November 21, 2014

"Passionate and prolific, Lenka Lichtenberg is a force of nature within Canada’s world music scene…Like Loreena McKennitt with Celtic sounds, Lichtenberg is pushing Yiddish music beyond its klezmer stereotype into a truly inspired form of world music." Nicholas Jennings, Penguin Eggs
