After playing three sold out Joe's Pub shows, Sanda Weigl is back for more!
Weigl's life is larger than the gypsy lore reflected in her songs. As outspoken politically as she is uncompromising musically, Romanian singer-songwriter Sandafirst achieved fame as a teen-age member of Team 4, East Germany's most popular rock band of the 1960s. After publicly denouncing communism and Russia's invasion of Czechoslovakia, she was banned from performing and sentenced to two years in an East Berlin prison; then, expelled to the West where she was free to continue crafting her art.
Since relocating to New York in the early nineties, Sanda has performed her singular interpretations to critical acclaim throughout the United States, Mexico, Poland, Germany, Israel, and an especially triumphant series of concerts in her native Romania.
