Tales From the Forgotten Kindgom
November 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished. Follow the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs. Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco’s gutsiness and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes.
This world-class ensemble features musicians from Israel, Palestine, Argentina and the USA. Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom is a sonic adventure masterfully brought to life by the Guy Mendilow Ensemble that intertwines music and storytelling, conjuring an imagi-nation lost to war and upheaval, recorded in a language that blends archaic Spanish with Arabic, Turkish and Greek. This internationally savvy ensemble delivers a richly textured global experience that “explodes with artistry, refinement, and excitement”.
Ensemble members are known for their work with artists as prolific and diverse as Yo-Yo Ma and Bruno Mars. This nationally touring show promises to be an exceptional evening at The Holland. A great program for audiences of all ages – families are most certainly welcome. Be sure to inquire about The Holland’s exceptional Youth Ticket program – 5 Spot for Youth when ordering tickets.
