Young Russian Jews Take Over 92YTribeca!

An evening of stories, humor, music, video, and a giant interactive hand.

July 17, 2012 at 92Y Tribeca

Dive headfirst into the raucous, unhinged, exuberant world that is your Russian-Jewish identity, or someone else’s. Chanteuse Mira Stroika and storyteller Ilya Khodosh take over 92YTribeca for one night only to regale you with the songs and stories of their displaced, hyphenated lives.

Video by Masha Pekurovsky
Interactive Tech by Scott Fitzgerald
Band: Justin Hines (Drums), Gabriel Lit (clarinet/bass clarinet), Ari Folman-Cohen (Bass), Mira Stroika (Voice, Piano, Accordion)


Mira Stroika

Take two cups of Edith Piaf, one half cup Eartha Kitt, a sprinkle of Betty Boop plus a serious portion of that je ne sais quoi that enthralls audiences, and you have what I see as one of New York’s most exciting new cabaret singers: Mira Stroika.
