Biography

Enrico was born in Florence in 1969, the great-grandson of a Jewish-Russian refugee who served as cantor in many Italian synagogues. After a variety of musical experiences in groups ranging from funk-rock to contemporary music (with pauses to complete a degree in physics) the encounter with klezmer and yiddish song directed him back to his roots. Since then, he has devoted himself to new interpretations of the Jewish cultural tradition, finding a path between "radical" and traditional, which uses both music and musical theater as means of expression. In addition to performing, Enrico devotes much time to teaching - among his engagements, he regularly holds since 2003 a Jewish Music workshop at the Bertinoro Summer School of Music, and teaches History of Jewish Music at the University of Jewish Music in Rome.
