The Guy Mendilow Ensemble invites you to an early evening performance that is a musical voyage. "Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom" tells stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost at sea, set to mesmerizing arrangements of Sephardi music. You'll travel by way of song to the Balkans and Middle East, starting in Sarajevo and going though Salonica into Jerusalem. Members of Mendilow's ensemble hail from Israel, Palestine, Argentina, Japan, and the U.S. With scintillating vocals and instrumentation, this is a show that likely will stay with you long after the final note.
