Hungarian Singer Eszter Biro to Perform with Klezmer King Frank London

Folk singer Eszter Biro is pretty famous in Hungary. She’s acted in films, theater, and was the lead singer for the Budapest Klezmer Band. But if you aren’t traveling to Central Europe anytime soon, don’t worry: Biro is heading to New York City to perform with Grammy-winning klezmer artist Frank London on Monday, June 24.

Biro got an early start to fame, starring in a Hungarian production of Miss Saigon when she was 16. Now at 33, Biro has three kids, a record company of her own, and a Jewish folk following—can you say lean in?

If you’re into Klezmer, new wave Hasidic jams, or you’re just looking to re-up on your Hungarian music street cred, you can check out one of Biro’s upcoming New York shows: June 24 at City Winery with London and June 30 at Drom with Hungarian band Parno Graszt.
