Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri Ensemble
Soundscapes of the oriental Jews

* abgespielt

The music of the oriental Jews (the Sephardi), a minority which has lived in the Arab lands for centuries, is virtually unknown in Europe. This evening highlights the musical tradition of the Jewish population of the Yemen, the oldest community in the diaspora. It has developed a totally independent culture with sounds that differ from those of Islamic traditions. In these compositions and musical arrangements, Timna Brauer and Elias Meiri bring together the ancient and the sacred with aspects of the archaic, all expressed in sophisticated, contemporary form.

  • Keyboard & melodica: Elias Meiri
