Step into a new world of Ladino music, re-imagined by the award-winning Guy Mendilow Ensemble, internationally recognized musicians who take the music out of the realm of art songs and back to its roots as songs of the streets and of fiestas: a music alive with passion and humor and grit.
Epic tales of sailors and love lost to the seas, fantastic dreams, and the intrigue of kings abound in arrangements that crackle with rich musical storytelling, seamlessly interwoven with poetic narration and historical vignettes. Starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica and Jerusalem, this concert brings to life the adventures and legends of traditional Sephardi songs, sung in the endangered Judeo-Spanish language, Ladino.
Light reception to follow.
The Guy Mendilow Ensemble is an award-winning group of world-class musicians from across the globe. Formed in 2004, the Ensemble has been enthusiastically received in venues ranging from world and traditional music festivals to performing arts centers, progressive Jewish organizations, and universities.
