Sefarad is the name the Spanish Jews gave to that land, hence their denomination as Sephardic people. Expelled from Spain alongside the Muslims, their culture, and their language, the Ladino, has been preserved in Northern Africa, Greece, Turkey and the Netherlands.  Jewish Sephardic music is one of the most fascinating music styles to come out of Spain. We will share recordings of this lesser known style of music.
