'SEPHARDIC MOON' in CONCERT

Luna Sefardita (`Sephardic Moon’) is the song of Alina, a girl who personifies the history of the Sephardic people and leaves Toledo, embarking on a long journey of exile, and following the traces of the moon in her own search and reunion.

Her nostalgic walk traces a bridge to the past and proposes a sonic journey through various Mediterranean landscapes. The repertoire offers a musical walk through the 'Spain of the Three Cultures': Rhythms of Pasacalles, oriental melodies, Sephardic legends, old and new compositions of ancient inspiration. The song lyrics are mainly in Judeo-Spanish or 'ladino', as well as in modern spanish. 

The concert has been described as ‘an idyllic journey through the three cultures, a highly emotional lesson seen through history’. Her music is often described as the ‘Toledo soundtrack’.
