Inge Mandos

Inge Mandos is a vocalist who has researched Yiddish music, language and history for many years. She specializes in traditional ballads and songs of Ashkenazim and Sephardic Jews.

She also collaborates with the pianist Klemens Kaatz and the violinist Hans-Christian Jaenicke on the project “WAKS – Yiddish voices”.  Their 2016 CD was nominated for „Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik”. She is also an ensemble member of the Yiddish-German cabaret “Schmattes” and the ensemble “Zimt – Sephardic songs”. In 2015, she produced the dance movie “Klasse” (class) together with Hannah Schwadron and Malia Bruker.
