A World In London 318: Lenka Lichtenberg Fri, 2020-04-03 11:49
I’ve been waiting years to meet Lenka Lichtenberg, the author of eight magnificent albums over two decades, that I’ve felt privileged to play on my radio show. Our 25 minute chat on this AWIL barely scratches the surface of her many achievements and infinite talent, which she’s incredibly modest about. Lenka’s albums are boundary-less visions of the world, informed by her musical theatre roots in Czechoslovakia as a child star, classical training with the Prague opera, studying jazz in Arhus, Denmark, before migrating to Canada in the 80’s. Lenka’s musical & life perspective is fully global, and comes from a gifted artist with a ‘need to create’, but who also has a complete understanding of ‘popular music’.
