      CONCERT | Aviva Chernick Ensemble

      Best known as a Ladino singer on her own and with her former Juno Award-nominated world music ensemble Jaffa Road, Aviva Chernick has begun incorporating Yiddish song into her repertoire. "I find a different part of myself when I sing in Yiddish, lighter in a way, more down to earth and frank," says Aviva. "This is a nice combination with the lushness and heartbreak of the Ladino folk songs." Aviva has put together a special repertoire for this pre-Shabbos concert, which also draws on her training in the cantorial arts and as a meditation teacher through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. Aviva's ensemble includes Joel Schwartz (guitars), Justin Gray (bass), and Naghmeh Farahmand (Persian percussion). _____________________________________________________________ Click here to purchase tickets to individual events. _____________________________________________________________ This event is part of Yidstock 2020: The Festival of New Yiddish Music.
