VOICES THAT WANDER

Tuesday 1st October | 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

Join us for an evening of beautiful vocal music as we celebrate traditional songs from the Mizrahi and Sephardi Jewish diasporas, debut new music inspired by traditional songs in the Judeo-Spanish language of Ladino and listen to the life stories of Mizrahi Jews in the UK.

Voices That Wander is a choral project which explores traditional songs in Ladino, the language of Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews who fled the inquisitions. The Wing-It Singers choir will perform new arrangements of traditional Ladino songs by Sally Davies and brand new choral compositions by composer Lydia Samuels, inspired by traditional Ladino music. Joining the choir are guest soloists Ana Silvera, Miriam Gould, David Ridley and Rosalie Warner.

Vanessa Paloma Elbaz, a Moroccan Jewish singer, scholar and expert in the music of the diasporic regions of 1492’s expulsion, will be sharing her knowledge of Ladino women’s songs through a dynamic fusion of music, visuals, and storytelling. Singer and composer Ana Silvera, who fuses the traditional music of her own lineage with a contemporary sound, will share Ladino traditional songs in a solo performance.

Joining us will be special guests from the charity ‘Sephardi Voices’, represented by several Mizrahi elders who will share their families’ experiences of migrating to and settling in the UK.
