Soy Sefaradí: A Concert Celebrating The Jews of Spain
Nicole Murad, Vocalist
Pablo Zinger, Piano
Sephardic Jews settled in the territory of today’s Spain as long as 2,000 years ago. In 1492 they were given the “choice” of converting or leaving. Nicole Murad is a dulcet toned, classically trained singer, who traces her Sephardic lineage back to 1492 Toledo, Spain. Her award winning program, Soy Sefaradí: Celebrating the Jews of Spain brings to life traditional Sephardic melodies transmitted from generation to generation in the original beautiful Ladino language - a dialect of old Spanish - featuring stories of love, death and nostalgia for a lost life. Nicole iis joined by Uruguayan born veteran pianist, conductor and composer, Pablo Zinger, a renowned expert on Spanish and Latin American music of Ashkenazi descent. His parents left Poland/Ukraine in 1939 and his grandparents were murdered by the Germans. Together they infuse the songs of the Sephardim with influences from Tango, classical, Latin and much more. Their voice and piano program includes informative and entertaining commentary by the artists.
