Join Lenka and the band to celebrate the release of their new EP. Capturing their infectious live energy and soaring lyrical performances, the songs were recorded live off the floor while touring across America last fall. A CFMA Award winning vocalist, Prague-born Lichtenberg is constantly innovating and expanding on her Czech and Jewish roots, with her emotive and crystalline voice leading the way. Don't miss this joyous night of global sounds and Yiddish roots - for the first time, with on-stage motion graphics by Lumir Hladik.
The band: Chris Gartner: bass; Alan Hetherington: drums, pandeiro; Lenka Lichtenberg: voice, harmonium, guitar; Ravi Naimpally: tabla, darbuka; Demetrios Petsalakis: oud, guitar, lyra

"EMBRACE U.S.A." tour: November 2015
THANK YOU to all the fans that came to hear us on our Embrace USA tour! Due to massive backlogs in P2 work visa processing, we missed the first concert of our tour at The Cedar in Minneapolis. We are very sorry about that, and hope to come back to that city some other time! Luckily, we made all the rest of our tour dates. We brought our serene Songs for the Breathing Walls to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and served up our global musical cuisine to enthusiastic crowds from there on, in New York, Chicago, Berkeley, Seattle, L.A., and Burlington, Iowa. We thank you, we love you all, and we are already looking forward to the next time! Visit this space to find some fun footage from some of the concerts, in a week or two. And not to forget: this tour was made possible through the generous support of Canada Council for the Arts Touring Program.
ARC: World Music for War Child - 2 songs included!
On January 8, 2015, the world's longest-running global music label ARC Music UK released World Music For War Child, a compilation to benefit the renowned charity which does such vital work advocating for the most innocent and voiceless victims of war around the world. I am truly honoured to have been asked to contribute two songs to this project -- "Peace Is The Only Way" (live version with Roula Said from our album Bridges) and "Mayn Rue Platz - Ruchi Tlifaat" from my most recent album Lullabies From Exile with Yair Dalal.
