Michelle Alany, violinist and vocalist, Global Folk Magic
A passionate violinist and vocalist, Michelle Alany has delighted and wowed audiences worldwide.
Specializing in a global acoustic sound that features lush strings, soulful vocals and rhythmic groove, Michelle delivers soulful interpretations of traditional and original Sephardic (Judeo-Spanish), Balkan and Israeli songs infused with her tasty Austin-blues stylings.
She is at home delivering haunting Mediterranean melodies, trading shredder blues licks or gently crafting a sensuous country solo on the fly, bringing her joyous abandon and enthusiasm to any world of music.
As an in-demand touring musician and recording artist, she has performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, played for sold-out events in theaters doing movie music or world music ensembles, and brought Texas music to packed Jazz and Blues listening rooms in Europe.
