Time Out’s beautiful words on SMF

Interesting write up for those who missed the Time Out piece on our Sephardic Music Festival…this is what they wrote: “In 1942, Columbus sailed the ocean blue – and Spain and Portugal cast out their native Jews, now known as Sepharadim. Some of those exiled folks picked up Balkan rhythms and Middle Eastern percussion in their new homes, adding global influence to existing Sephardic sounds. This five-day fest focuses on that musical tradition and history, with a concert that fuses Iberian staples with tango, a story slam invoking diasporic trials and dozens of international bands and solo performers reinterpreting centuries-old folk tunes.” – Time Out
