Jews and Sufis: Shared Musical Traditions

March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Jews and Sufis: Shared Musical Traditions

Performance and Discussion

From at least the sixteenth century up to the present, Hebrew devotional poetry (piyyutim) set to Ottoman/Turkish makam music for use in the synagogue has shown the close relationship Jews established with members of Muslim mystical brotherhoods in Ottoman regions. This program presents selections from these shared musical repertoires.

Performance by Dünya Ensemble with discussion by Katz Center fellow Edwin Seroussi.

Free community reception following the performance.

Seating is limited; register now at:
