Guy Mendilow Ensemble to kick off series at State

Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished when the Guy Mendilow Ensemble takes the stage at Red Bluff’s State Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20.

Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom will be the season opener for the Tehama Concert Series.

Follow the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, all set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores. Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco’s gutsiness and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes.

Journey through the Balkans to the Mid-East beginning in Sarajevo and winding through Salonica and Jerusalem. Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom is a sonic adventure masterfully brought to life by the award-winning quintet of world-class musicians with members hailing from Israel, Palestine, Argentina, the UK and the USA. This ensemble of internationally savvy world musicians delivers a richly textured global experience of haunting beauty.
