SANDA WEIGL "A-SYMPHONATICAL" with SHOKO NAGAI on piano
Romanian born singing sensation  Sanda Weigl blends gypsy music, cabaret and jazz, reflecting her own life story in every moment of her vast and inventive repertoire.

As outspoken politically as she is uncompromising musically, Sanda first achieved fame as a teen-age member of Team 4, East Germany's most popular rock band of the 1960s. After publicly denouncing communism and Russia's invasion of Czechoslovakia, she was banned from performing and sentenced to two years in an East Berlin prison; then, expelled to the West where she was free to continue crafting her art.
Since relocating to New York in the early nineties, Sanda has performed her singular interpretations to critical acclaim throughout the United States, Mexico, Poland, Germany, Austria, Israel, UK , her native Romania and around the world.

To call Weigl's voice "powerful" would be an understatement. She has an impressive vocal range. Her interpretations are dramatic, even theatrical, but never "over the top". A comparison with Diamanda Galas might have some resonance, but Weigl's purpose is not to shock, but rather to communicate the vibrant life force inherent in the music. Which she does admirably, with an energy and panache that speaks of her intimate familiarity with the material. Always though, it comes back to Weigl's extraordinary voice.
