Biography – Masha Ray

Seductively, sweet vocals, snappy-ironic lyrics, and sophisticated musical arrangements. That’s what makes for the distinct sound of Berlin-based songwriting/producer duo Masha Ray. Both classically trained musicians, they met in a Songwriting Camp in Rotterdam and instantly clicked over their love for retro sounds and styles.

In 2019 they released their debut album “Electro Swing”, introducing their very own mix of Swing, Balkan Beats, Klezmer, and fresh, modern pop production. A fruitful collaboration with “Berlin Production” that has landed them several placements in TV and Media all over the world.

“Vintage Dance”, as they call their exciting cross-over genre, has made them an integral part of the modern Jewish music community, and has allowed them to perform in European metropoles like Milan (IT), Prague (CZ), and even the prestigious Live at Heart Festival in Örebrö (SWE).

Masha Ray are especially known for the magic that happens when they appear on stage as a duo or backed by a jaw-dropping brass-heavy power horse. They stand for music that pleases modern listeners and nostalgic ears alike.
