Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lenka Lichtenberg is an award-winning singer and composer born in Prague and living in Toronto, Canada. With seven solo albums to date, this new album sees Lichtenberg turn her sights to her homeland-Czech Repulic- and the music that she grew up with. MASARYK is an evocative collection of reimagined Czech, Moravian and Slovak folk songs, based on Jan Masaryk’s seminal 1948 songbook Narodni pisne. Lichtenberg’s clarion voice soars above musical settings both classic and contemporary, breathing new life into the much beloved repertoire. “Lichtenberg’s vocals remain remarkably controlled and soulful throughout.” (Songlines UK) “Lenka creativity transcends all genre conventions, calling to destroy with the help of colorful music barriers Read more between people.” (Ancestor Russia) “Passionate and prolific, Lenka Lichtenberg is a force of nature within Canada’s world music scene…” (Penguin Eggs Canada) Read less
