Sefarad: Music of the Jews of Spain, Portugal and Their Diaspora

Sefarad: Music of the Jews of Spain, Portugal and Their Diaspora

Sun, May 30, 2021 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Central European Summer Time (UTC+2)

Tickets ($18) here.

Join us for a dynamic interactive journey through the fascinating legacy of the Sephardic music.

About this event

Sefarad is both a geographical place and a concept – it’s Spain and Portugal, and it’s the centuries and continents of the Sephardic diaspora, to the present. We’ll travel – musically – from medieval Jewish life in Spain and Portugal through the diaspora in Morocco and the eastern Mediterranean, former Ottoman lands. Old ballads with hypnotizing stories, irresistible wedding song rhythms, songs of the Jewish calendar cycle and the popular love songs and songs of daily life will be presented both live and in archival recordings, with photos and stories of the Sephardim who kept this tradition alive against all odds.

With your contribution, you will also be donating to Canadian Feed the Children, an organization seeking to create long-term, sustainable food security and access to education, and build community capacity for sustainable development in Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda, Bolivia, and in Indigenous communities in Canada.

About Judith

Judith Cohen is a Canadian ethnomusicologist and singer known for her work in Sephardic music, and related traditions.

Besides, she has spent many years of fieldwork and research on music in the lives of Portuguese Crypto-Jews, who maintained their identity throughout the centuries of the Inquisition.
