7:30 PM

Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished with the Guy Mendilow Ensemble.


Follow the stories of vagabond queens and lovers lost to the sea, set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores. Journey through the Balkans to the Mid-East beginning in Sarajevo and winding through Salonica in a sonic adventure brought to life by this world-class quintet from Israel, Palestine, Argentina and USA.


With soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco's gutsiness combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes, this ensemble of internationally savvy musicians delivers a richly textured global experience of haunting beauty.

"It's a folk music of hope and affirmation, sophisticated in its delivery
but easily accessible to listeners anywhere." - Chicago Tribune
