Presenting the songs, stories and languages of several Jewish diaspora cultures, this concert will take you on a journey through the diverse soundscapes of the Jewish world. The line-up features some of the world’s top performers of Jewish music.
We look forward to immersing ourselves in the Babylonian Jewish Iraqi musical heritage and the music of the Bedouins (Sinai desert nomads) brought to us by the brilliant Yair Dalal; Sephardic songs by Esti Kenan Ofri; Yiddish, Hebrew and Russian songs by Sveta Kundish and Sasha Lurje, and piyutim (Jewish religious songs) sung by Dr. Naomi Cohn Zentner as well as long forgotten Yiddish songs with Efim Chorny and Susan Ghergus. Not to be missed!
