Pasha Lion, a.k.a. Psoy, is a Moscow “avant-bard” & wandering scholar”. He has invented a rather unique songwriter cabaret combining traditions of Soviet popular song & sung poetry, Yiddish folk & theater songs, modern French chansons, rap & Tom Lehrer.
For more than 10 years, he has been working w/ Yiddishist & Klezmer artists, participating in many events, festivals & collaborative projects, such as Brothers Nazaroff, the latest one.
A playful but deep poet-singer in Russian, he is a master of translation/tradaptation & language code switching for a non-Russian speaking audience. The show is usually in English, Russian, Yiddish-ish & some French.
