Though stolen from their homeland and scattered across the world, both Jews and Africans found strength in their music. Discover the rhythms of the Jewish ghetto in 1620 – dances and prayers from the Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Jewish baroque, and North African traditions. A company of 24 musicians – including Jewish, Arab, and African-American artists – raise their voices in love and celebration.
Pre-Concert Conversation with the artists 30 minutes before each concert.
Sunday evening AFTERGLOW: drink a toast with the musicians and meet their fascinating instruments (oud, hammered dulcimer, doumbek and more)!
