With a voice for the ages, this award-winning artist (2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards -Traditional Singer of the Year) melds innovative expressions of traditional song with her own contemporary compositions, combining folk, jazz and world into a unique celebration of her roots. A child star in her native Prague, Czech Republic, she is a singer-songwriter, published composer and bandleader with 6 solo CD releases. Her 2016 album “Yiddish Journey” was released by the U.K.-based ARC Music,, which also signed off on releasing her 2017 album “Masaryk”. Lenka is in the midst of a diverse international concert career, traveling across continents as a solo artist, with her group “Fray”, or with one of her collaborative projects. Her latest tour (December, 2016) included a concert at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, D.C.
