The Zu-Aretz Brothers
One of Israel’s most famous actors and TV presenters, Guy Zu-Aretz and his musician brother Roy in a concert of Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) melodies from their Jerusalem childhood. The brothers sing and share much loved stories dating back to the time of the Spanish expulsion to their parent’s heritage in Greece, Turkey, and Libya before immigrating (aliya) to Israel. A moving and intimate concert that touches the heart and the meaning and home.
Zion80 explores Jewish music – from Shlomo Carlebach to John Zorn – through the lens of the Afrobeat funkmaster Fela Anikulapo Kuti. The band arranges Jewish melodies to blazing hot, polyrhythmic grooves, blended with the madness of the Downtown scene. Spiritual, grooving, and endlessly exciting, this is essential Jewish music for the 21st century.
