Guy Mendilow Ensemble: Tales From the Forgotten Kingdom
Events
  • Guy Mendilow Ensemble

     
     

    Get ready for an emotionally powerful, artistic voyage awash with warm harmonies, intricate textures and spellbinding rhythms. Starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica and Jerusalem, the award winning Guy Mendilow Ensemble brings to life the adventures and legends of traditional Sephardi songs, sung in the endangered Judeo-Spanish language, Ladino. 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 often poignant historical vignettes. Step into a new world of Ladino music, re-imagined by a team of internationally recognized players and spearheaded by charismatic Israeli composer/performer Guy Mendilow. It’s a recasting that shifts from spare to sweepingly cinematographic, taking 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 humour and grit. Presented by the New Center.
