Embark on a musical
trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished. Follow the
stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, all set to
spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores.
Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco's gutsiness
and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion
and intricate soundscapes.
Journey through the
Balkans to the Mid-East beginning in Sarajevo and winding through Salonica and
Jerusalem. Led by Israeli-born Guy Mendilow, Tales
from the Forgotten Kingdom is a sonic adventure masterfully
brought to life by an award-winning quintet of world-class musicians with
