Lee Colbert

Leonore Goldberg, as known as Lee Colbert, is a singer known for her great voice and her participation in the famous Moni Ovadia's Theater Orchestra. She is one of the best appreciated interpreters of the Yiddish singer-songwriter song. this Jewish-Argentinian Argentinian singe, but Est-Europe born, in her experience melts different genres, tradistions and music styles. About her voice we cite Moni Ovadia's comment: “What a beautiful voice, a wonderful voice!” How many times have you heard this comment during a singer exhibition.. Leonore Goldberg, today known as Lee Colbert, has not a “beautiful voice”, its just extraordinary, magic. She is able to represent a musical culture in all its magnificence, catching its secret and unknown shadings. The repertory of the Yiddish author-song has found, in this Jewish Argentinean woman, with Est-European origin and musically educated in the USA, its best and complete expression.The meeting between the voice of Lee with Mordekkai Gebirtig, one of the most prolific and genial author of Yiddish songs, is a sort of epiphany: it seems that all these songs have been written especially for her, and it’s not hazardous to say that she is absolutely their best interpreter.
