Susana Behar Trio
A concert / lecture about Sephardic music.
Sephardic music encompasses a great number of musical traditions that flourished around the Mediterranean Basin.
The Sephardic Diaspora has expanded for more than 500 years in these adoptive lands, and through the years, its cultural fabric has evolved, borrowing from the culture and the people who welcomed them.Throughout the centuries, the music has continued to evolve, ever enriched by the creativity of musicians who have been interpreting the prolific repertoire.
Sephardic songs, the themes of which are inspired and drawn from a wide variety of sources (medieval poems, folk tales, everyday stories and sacred texts), are sung in Ladino or Judeo-Spanish, a language that is a tapestry in itself.
