Sepharad: Voices From Across the Strait
December 6, 2010
Show Starts: 6:30pm

The Strait of Gibraltar has long served as a bridge between North Africa and Iberia, facilitating transcontinental kingdoms for centuries and as an important passage for Sephardic migrants. Moroccan cultural expressions remain central to the perpetuity of Sephardic culture. As a part of the sixth annual Sephardic Music Festival, this event provides an opportunity to explore aspects of Sephardic musical culture through performances by singer and scholar Vanessa Paloma and ASEFA, performing North African and Jewish music in a contemporary way. An audience-interactive panel discussion follows with the artists, led by ethnomusicologist and curator, Samuel R. Thomas.

Location: 15 West 16th Street, NYC
Tickets: General Admission: $15 | $12 for ASF & YUMuseum members and students.
Ticket includes both performances, panel discussion with the artists, entrance to Yeshiva University Museum and viewing the current ASF exhibit, Looking Back: The Jews of Morocco.
