Born in Siberia, Polina Shepherd (Skovoroda) learned music as a child around the family table. Now an internationally renowned singer of Russian and Yiddish song, she performs (and teaches) with an explosive mixture of powerful rhythm and profound melodies. Traditional yet modern, she brings the songs of the Steppes and the Shtetl up to date with passion and haunting soul. http://www.polinashepherd.co.uk
