The Sound of Our Identities: Sephardic, Ashkenazic, and Israeli Music

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Susana Behar and Alejandra Czarny grew up in very different communities and were surrounded by very different cultures. Susana, born in Cuba and informed by Sephardic grandparents, grew up in Venezuela. Alejandra was born and raised in Argentina, and is Ashkenaz informed. Their musical careers took them on very different paths. Susana has dedicated most of her journey through the Sephardic repertoire and Alejandra through the Yiddish songbook. While growing up, however, they were both immersed in Israeli music and Latin American folk music. After years of sharing stages and their love of Jewish music here in Miami, today, through that which connects them, they will take us on a musical journey in Hebrew, Yiddish and Ladino.

Alejandra and Susana will be accompanied by Michel Gonzalez on guitar and Reza Filsoofi on percussions.
