The Strait of Gibraltar has long served as a bridge between North Africa and Iberia, facilitating transcontinental kingdoms for centuries and as an important passage for Sephardic migrants. Moroccan cultural expressions remain central to the perpetuity of Sephardic culture. As a part of the sixth annual Sephardic Music Festival, this event provides an opportunity to explore aspects of Sephardic musical culture through performances by singer and scholar Vanessa Paloma and ASEFA, performing North African and Jewish music in a contemporary way. An audience-interactive panel discussion follows with the artists, led by ethnomusicologist and curator, Samuel R. Thomas.

Presented in collaboration with the American Sephardi Federation and Yeshiva University Museum
Program curator: Samuel R. Thomas; Artists: Vanessa Paloma and ASEFA

Co-sponsors: The Foundation for Iberian Music, American Jewish Historical Society, American Society for Jewish Music, the Institute for Sephardic Studies, AsefaMusic and Shemspeed
