Vocal artist and folklorist Maria Krupoves is internationally acclaimed as a singer and interpreter of the folksongs of Central and Eastern Europe, especially those of her native Vilnius.  She has traveled extensively to find songs in Yiddish, Polish, Lithuanian, Belarussian, Gypsy (Roma), and more.  Multilingual herself, she sings her entire repertory in the original languages.  Her repertory of Yiddish songs includes some she herself recorded from Holocaust survivors.

Maria speaks Yiddish fluently and has published articles in Yiddish in the Forverts and in YIVO Yedies/YIVO News (New York).
