First I would like to invite you to watch a 7-minute film from some concerts of Sephardic music with the participation of different musicians:

SEPHARDIC SONGS PROGRAMS IN VARIOUS STYLES:

Sephardic music, the music of Jews who lived on the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages, comes from Spain - Sepharad as it was called in Hebrew. The choice of songs for the program IN THE WORLD OF SEPHARAD was made by the vocalist Anna Riveiro who is considered to be the master of Sephardic songs and called “the Polish voice of Sepharad („La voz polaca de Sefarad” - eSefarad.com).

Arrangements of Sephardic songs for two guitars evoke the connections of this music with the culture of Spain. The songs will be performed with one or two guitars and a capella. Warm, sensual voice of the singer excellently matches the guitarist’s virtuosic playing and the main topic of the concert is love…
