The L.A. Sephardic Music Festival & Wilshire Boulevard Temple Present: BALAGAN SALON* in Los Angeles this December 3rd. Balagan Salon is a tantalizing preview of the full festival, which will take place in and around Los Angeles in early March.
The Salon, which takes place on the 7th night of Chanukah, will feature art; DJ | ART | ANDALUSIAN BELLY DANCING | STORYTELLING | SCULPTURE | WORLD RHYTHMS | PROJECTIONS | HENNAH | LIVE BAND | + OPEN WINE BAR sponsored by Le Soreq and complimentary gourmet latkes by Nina Safar (aka Kosher in the Kitch, a regular on Perez Hilton’s Celebrity blogger).
Guests will be transported to a blend of old-world royalty and neo-hipster vibes. Diwon will spin world music and Chanukah remixes along with incredible songs featured on the Sephardic Music Festival CDs by Matisyahu, Moshav, Yasmin Levy and tons more.
The Sephardic Music Festival is the first music festival to focus exclusively on the lesser known but captivating culture of the Jewish communities of Spain/Portugal, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. The Festival connects Jews to the diverse tapestry of their Jewish heritage through the arts, fashion, food and personalities. The Festival transforms our paradigm for what it means to “look” or “sound” Jewish.
