Please join us to enjoy The Month of Hanukkah -- the unique repertoire of folk and Judeo-Spanish holiday songs as presented by Voice of the Turtle. These internationally acclaimed performers continue to delight audiences with unique and rarely heard repertoire reflecting the dramatic history and spirit of the Spanish Jews. As always, the quartet brings its signature musical arrangements using an expansive palette of instruments; saz, 'ud, baglama, rebec, kamanja, harp and psaltery, shawms, chalumeaux, bombards, flutes, nays, middle eastern percussion, as well as modern instruments to evoke more than 500 years of the complex and intriguing paths of exile of the Spanish Jews through North Africa, the Balkans, and the Near and Middle East.
