The Soul of Spain
July 31 @ 8:00 pm
Yuval Ron Ensemble
“An extraordinary testament to music’s transforming power and inspirational reach.” (KCRW, National Public Radio)
In a vivid program, the Yuval Ron Ensemble – with guest flamenco artists Manuel Gutierrez and Andres Vadin – explores the Jewish and Gypsy traditions of Andalusia, Spain. With fiery Flamenco, Sephardic-Jewish music, fiery dance, and fascinating storytelling, the program delves deep into the Golden Age of Spain, a time of collaboration between the three Abrahamic faiths, which led to cultural and scientific peak achievements.
The sublime and stirring guest gypsy-flamenco artists evoke Andalusia in the Middle Ages and with the Ensemble explore a vision for the 21st century as a new time of Convivecia (Living together in harmony), reconciliation, and promoting dialogue and collaboration among Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities worldwide.
