Moshe Denburg, composer, performer and author of Jewish Music: An Overview will take us on a journey to explore the many tributaries of Jewish Music from around the world. For millennia, Jewish people have lived as global wanderers, amidst many cultures not our own. To preserve our culture, we have adapted our music to incorporate cross cultural elements. This creative intercultural synthesis has developed unique qualities that defy geography. We will explore the differences between Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi music. Moshe will perform live with vocals and guitar and utilize recordings from the Tzimmes repertoire to illustrate the variety of languages, rhythms, and modes in the Jewish musical experience, literally ‘The Many Faces of Jewish Music’.
