Saturday, August 22nd, 7 pm
[In case of bad weather, Chiesa di S. Pietro, 9 pm]
MODENA – Boscomartello, via Malmusi 172

Musiche dalle comunità ebraiche del Mediterraneo
Ensemble Sensus
Marco Muzzati, direzione

In the green setting of Boscomartello, emerges Sephardic music: a sweet lament, happiness veiled with melancholy. Female songs, transmitted from mother to daughter, like the same Jewish lineage. Sephardic music is in fact the music of the so-called “Spanish” Jews: Sepharad is the ancient name of Spain, their homeland. Secular music of oral tradition, of the people who scattered from the Iberian coasts throughout the Mediterranean.
