Guava Rugelach Festival
Celebrate the vast array of musical genres that create the whole that is Miami's diverse Jewish community. From the Ladino songs of Spain mingled with Flamenco to pop songs of the 1920s; from Klezmer for kids to Klezmer jamming with Latin beats; from previously hidden classical gems unearthed in redemption to the intersection of redemption and Spirituals of the south  this is Tropical Jewish Sound.

The Festival kicks off Saturday night, September 1 at 9pm with the premiere of Of Essence & Time/De La Esencia & El Tiempo a collaboration of Sephardic singer Susana Behar, Flamenco guitarist Jose Luis Rodriguez and Nu Flamenco dancer Niurca Marquez. The piece explores the mutual Andalusian roots of Sephardic tradition and Flamenco music and how each has influenced the other in origins as well as in the artists' collaborative fusions.

On Sunday at 1pm, the Klezmer For Kids component of the festival offers families a rich dip into Yiddish culture through the multidisciplinary presentation of the children's book, Mendel's Accordion is performed by accordionist Aaron Kula and the Klezmer Company Orchestra. The performance also includes projections of the picture book and award-winning performer Deborah Sherman as reader.
