Soprano Meets Bass

Soprano Meets Bass (Sephardic Treasures)

Timely tales of refugees and heroic women

Soprano Meets Bass offers a program of Sephardic Treasures, (described in one review as “legendary’) selected from the Sephardic Romancero, collections of songs originating in 12th to 15th Century Spain. During the 20th Century these songs were transcribed by ethnomusicologists from the women’s oral tradition in Sephardic communities around the Mediterranean in Morocco, Palestine, the Balkans and elsewhere.
