Souls on Fire, Los Angeles, 30 Jan 2011

The Jewish Music Commission of Los Angeles is proud to present

Three cultures inhabited Spain in the 12th-15th centuries, each making an indelible impression on the region's art and music. They lived in harmony until the expulsion of the Jews and Gitanos in 1492. Join us for a musical exploration of Spanish, Ladino & Arabic culture that will take you on a sonic journey through the passion of Flamenco, the poetry of Sephardic culture and the rhythm of the Moorish. A world-class ensemble, each renowned in their own right, will combine the traditional sounds from Spain's Golden Age.
