CONCERT – Diwan Saz: Harmony in the Holy Land An Evening Reflecting Israel’s Musical Mosaic

March 8, 2015 West Newton $15.00 - $25.00 0

Featuring Rabbi David Menachem, a rising star in the revival of piyyutim (Jewish liturgical poems) in Israel; Lubna Saleme, a featured vocalist with Nazareth Orchestra; and Mohammed Gaddir, a 14-year-old Bedouin singer, Diwan Saz performs traditional Middle Eastern music from many traditions.

Using traditional acoustic instruments such as the saz and baglama, seven musicians perform ancient music from Central Asia, Turkey, Persia, and the Holy Land —promoting peace and understanding through their music. Their “Harmony in the Holy Land” concerts incorporate melodies and texts of the diverse musical heritages found in Israel.

On Sunday, March 8 from 7–9 p.m., the Boston Jewish Music Festival and Temple Shalom Music Committee will present the United States premiere of this esteemed ensemble. This event is made possible with the generous support of Temple Shalom and The Israeli Consulate of New England.
