Sephardic Jewish Music Workshop, with Shira Kammen ONLINE


Sun May 17 2020


1:00 pm - 2:45 pm




In this workshop, we’ll explore the wonderful genre of Sephardic Jewish music, with its many varied flavors and styles from the Eastern European, Rom, Near and Middle Eastern traditions, among others. Utilizing techniques of improvisation, playing with modes, rhythm, harmonizing and accompaniment, we’ll strive to understand this music from the inside out. This workshop is designed for both instrumentalists and vocalists. The ability to read music is not necessary, just bring big ears and a sense of adventure!

Registrations received by Saturday midnight will receive sign-in information Sunday by 10am. If you have not heard by then, write before Sunday 11am.
