Featuring both local and out-of-town performers, Tarbut (which is Hebrew for culture) showcases the best of Jewish culture through a variety of mediums. Framed by the annual Jewish Book Fair and integrating the Israeli Concert Series, Tarbut’s program line-up will include Jewish musical concerts, prominent author presentations, compelling Jewish feature films and visual arts.
Baladino will play on Thursday, November 19, 7:30 pm. More info about the band:
Direct from Israel, this Mediterranean folk band of five musicians performs in Ladino, the language of Sephardic Jews of Spain prior to 1492. Baladino’s modern take on this music emphasizes the multiplicity embedded in Israeli culture. With stunning vocals, unexpected instruments, and a pitch-perfect sense of arrangement, Baladino’s songs form a jumping-off point for instrumental improvisations driven by Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves.
