Featuring contemporary musicians from across the Middle East, Aljashu & Friends performs songs that traveled with the Spanish-Jewish conversos to the Caribbean and the Americas. The performance spans 500 years of traditional songs sung in Ladino (Judeo-Español) that can be heard from Argentina and Aruba to Venezuela and the Virgin Islands.
Led by singer Julia Madeson, the group features Moroccan-born vocalist and Qanun performer, Ali Amr. He has been honored as the best Arabic music performer of the year. Ali dazzles his audience as he smoothly leaps from traditional Arabic sounds to jazz and other contemporary styles. His soaring technique, melodic ingenuity, and unparalleled grace have earned him acclaim as a virtuoso on the Qanun.
