MC Studio Session Presents Blue Hills

Rivka Amado, and the “Blue Hills” musical ensemble, perform an entrancing collection of traditional Sephardic (Ladino) songs. Sephardic music has its roots in the lyrical traditions of Jewish communities in medieval Spain. Since then, the music has picked up influences from Morocco, Argentina, Turkey, Greece, and other places that Spanish Jews settled after their expulsion from Spain in 1492. Rivka’s performance mixes historical narrative, accounts of Sephardic culture, and popular Sephardic songs.
