Baladino – Israeli Mediterranean folk band

March 31, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Baladino is an Israeli Mediterranean folk band.

With its members hailing from Berlin and Tel Aviv, Baladino is a Mediterranean folk band that offers fresh, yet deeply authentic interpretations of traditional Jewish Saphardic and Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) melodies. This music was born from Jews exiled from Spain and Portugal, traveling through the former Ottoman lands, Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and Morocco. As such, the group brings together instruments and traditions from the wide span of cultures that fed into this musical language historically, updating it with their own youthful energy and contemporary backgrounds in jazz improvisation and electronica. Embracing the old and the new, members perform on instruments both ancient and modern, and have made names for themselves collectively and individually in traditional settings and on YouTube.
