Performing together since 2016, The Murad-Zinger Duo infuses the songs of the Sephardim and the Ashkenazim with Tango, classical, Spanish and Latin American music. Their programs incorporate informative, entertaining and humorous commentary by the artists.
Nicole Murad is a dulcet-toned, classically trained singer, who traces her Sephardic lineage back to 1492 Toledo, Spain. A student of the great Marni Nixon, she has performed Ladino songs of love, death and nostalgia in synagogues, concert halls, community centers and festivals.
Pablo Zinger, born in Uruguay from Polish-Ukrainian Jewish immigrants, is an internationally acclaimed pianist, conductor, and composer who partnered such greats as Plácido Domingo, Paquito D’Rivera and Astor Piazzolla.
