Hélène Engel presents the CD Embrace by Canadian singer Lenka Lichtenberg released by Sunflower Records in April 2013. This album co-produced by Alan Hetherington is inspired by both traditional Jewish songs (Aleynu, Tumbalalaika) and Yiddish poetry (Shnirele Perele, Vayn Fun Lebn).

A mixture of East and West supported by the Yiddish language.
