LilFest Presents "Tales From the Forgotten Kingdom" with Guy Mendilow & Sofia Tosello
Get ready for an emotionally powerful, artistic voyage awash with warm harmonies, intricate rhythms and spellbinding vocal improvisation. On April 6th LilFest presents the GUY MENDILOW DUO featuring GUY MENDILOW AND SOFIA TOSELLO in a special intimate performance of Tales From the Forgotten Kingdom: Ladino Songs Renewed, at 7:30pm at  Heritage Hall (101 W Main St Lisbon, IA 52253).

Israeli composer Guy Mendilow (twice voted Boston's Best World Music Act  Boston Phoenix) and Argentine vocalist Sofia Tosello re-imagine centuries-old Sephardi songs, starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica and Jerusalem. Epic tales of sailors and love lost to the seas, fantastic dreams and the intrigue of kings and queens come to life in vivid arrangements that shift from quiet and haunting to fast-paced and refreshingly spontaneous. It's a recasting that takes the music out of the realm of art songs and back to its roots as songs of the streets and of fiestas; a music alive with adventure and humor and grit.

"It's a folk music of hope and affirmation, sophisticated in its delivery but easily accessible to listeners anywhere."
Chicago Tribune

Guy Mendilow and Sofia Tosello break away from their award-winning sextet, the Guy Mendilow Ensemble, to offer a special duo presentation geared for the immediacy and intimacy of the storytelling in these ancient Ladino songs. The goal of this project is to bring new audiences to this music in an exciting and atmospheric presentation. "These songs and stories sweep you away in their power, whatever your own heritage" Mendilow says. "Time has already vetted this music. Only the best songs and tales endure for hundreds of years."
