|Romanian-born singer Sanda Weigl, internationally celebrated for her potent, contemporary interpretation of Romanian gypsy music, returns to Joe's Pub, with her maverick band including Shoko Nagai - Piano, Accordion, Arrangements; Stomu Takeishi - Bass; and Satoshi Takeishi - Percussion.
“... [Sanda Weigl] has kept New Yorkers enthralled with a steady stream of the Romanian Gypsy songs that she learned on the streets of Bucharest in her youth.” The New Yorker, May 2008
“To call Sanda’s voice ‘powerful’ would be an understatement…Her interpretations are dramatic, even theatrical, but never ‘over the top’... If you’re a fan of vocal ethnic music of any sort, that’s something you don’t want to miss.” Bill Tilland, BBC
