96yo Metal Grandma Holocaust Survivor "The Universe Echoes Back" Inge Ginsberg & the TritoneKings
Inge & the TritoneKings "Totenköpfchen"
Inge Ginsberg survived the Holocaust and became a spy for the Americans during WWII, smuggling arms to fight the Nazis. She married a composer and they wrote songs together in the 40's and 50's that were sung by Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Doris Day, and Rosemary Clooney, among others. 60 years later, she got back into music and fell in love with Heavy Metal, which she now performs with world-renowned Classical musicians Lucia Caruso and Pedro da Silva – a.k.a. the TritoneKings.
