Details: Baladino with Robayat at Cedar Cultural Center

Israel’s music scene is a crucible. Its multicultural abundance pushes musicians to be highly flexible, leaping from jazz to rock to folk, while keeping a profound commitment to both technique and heritage. Baladino sprang from this world, where as highly skilled professional players, they engage on a regular basis with a wealth of deep roots and little-known traditions.

Now five top musicians are bringing Ladino tradition back into full, fresh dialogue with its trans-Mediterranean past, using extended technique, subtle electronics, and improvisation to dust off the predominant heavy-handed approach to Ladino music. With stunning vocals, unexpected instruments, and a pitch-perfect sense of arrangement, the Israeli group melds everything from Egyptian clay darbuka to Armenian apricot wood duduk, from Ladino classics to rarely heard tunes, into a sonically vibrant, organic whole.

Formed in 1989 by Iranian native Maryam Yusefzadeh, Robayat performs the indigenous music of Persia, Turkey and Central Asia.
