The Forgotten Kingdom

The Forgotten Kingdom

Performed by Guy Mendilow Ensemble

Thursday, November 2, 7:30pm


Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished. Follow the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores. Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco’s gutsiness and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes. Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom is a sonic adventure masterfully brought to life by the Guy Mendilow Ensemble, a quintet of world-class musicians from Israel, Palestine, Argentina and the US.  The intertwining music and cinematic storytelling conjures an imagi-nation lost to war and upheaval, recorded in a language that blends archaic Spanish with Arabic, Turkish and Greek.  This internationally savvy ensemble delivers a richly textured global experience that “explodes with artistry, refinement, and excitement.”
