Daniella received a scholarship from The Workman’s Circle to study Yiddish and carry on the rich legacy of the Yiddish theater for a new generation. While studying the language and culture, she fell in love with Yiddish song.
This repertoire has taken her around the world, performing at such venues as Jazz at Lincoln Center and in Warsaw, Poland. She is currently recording her first album, Klezmerette. Daniella is a featured vocalist on Litvakus’ EP and has performed with Litvakus in their program of Yiddish folk and theater songs. Rabbani made her Off Broadway debut starring in Gimpel Tam for which the New York Observer noticed her “sympathetic, utterly alive performance”. A graduate of the Stella Adler studio at NYU Tisch, Rabbani has performed all over the world with mentor Zalmen Mlotek. Rabbani’s TV and film work can be seen on FX’s The Americans, FOX’s Laughs, PBS’ Triangle Fire, Sundance’s Appropriate Behaviour, Tribeca’s Be Here Nowish and in her upcoming film OMA, starring Lynn Cohen, inspired by her experience as a third generation Holocaust survivor.
