Moni Ovadia [Milan, Italy]

Moni Ovadia (*1946), is an Italian singer, musician, author, theatre actor and director, who was born in Bulgaria to a Jewish family. Inspired by his great love for the Yiddish culture, which his musical theatre has helped to revive and make known, it is above all his love of mankind and his ongoing commitment to a culture of peace that have turned Ovadia into one of the most important contemporary creators, with a wide audience that spans all generations.
