Musical treasures of the Mediterranean

 

The show “Spain and Beyond” is the story of my paternal ancestors on their journey from Andalusia back to Jerusalem, 15th Century. 
It is as exciting and colourful as any myth or fairytale, but I know it in my bones, from the juicy tales of my mother and grandmother, to the colourful family rituals and celebrations, and the fun-filled Holidays laced with song and dance that continued perpetually like a hot blooded Purim Carnival…
It follows a thesis that I wrote, entitled: Sephardi Song – A Bridge Between Cultures, and currently I am in the process of writing a book about my family’s historical long sojourn in Jerusalem.   
Many exiles from Spain settled around the Mediterranean in countries like Turkey, Greece, Italy, Portugal, France and the Americas…
There was a cultural cross fertilisation, and I will sing the songs, tell the tales, and recreate the magic of International Cabaret.
