Desert Roots: Concert and Presentation

November 20, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm CET

Middle Eastern Jewish Music
Join us on a musical journey around Yemen, Spain and North Africa though Jewish songs of spirit and awe, songs of love and songs of hope.

Dror will take us on a beautiful journey around Yemen, Spain and North Africa from the 10th century until today, through songs of spirit and awe, songs of thanks and songs of love and hope. We will unveil how these chants inspired and connected Jews from different times and places, but with the same longings and spiritual quests. Dror will accompany his singing with a variety of percussion instruments including a Doumbek (an hourglass Middle Eastern drum also known as Tabla or Darbuka) Tar, Duff & Bendir (Mideastern & North African Frame drums) a Riq (Mideastern tambourine), Cajon (box drum) bells, shakers and rattles.

With your contribution you will also be donating to the “Shahar Avakeshkha שחר אבקשך” project, which aims at preserving the tradition of North African Jewry mainly through keeping alive the tradition of singing Bakkashot (supplications) and Andalusian music in Israel.
