Review for Guy Mendilow and Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom: Ladino Songs Renewed:
Experience the raw power of this emotionally captivating, artistic concert up close. Join Guy Mendilow (twice voted Boston’s Best World Music Act) and renowned Argentinian singer Sofia Tosello for a voyage awash with warm harmonies, intricate textures and spellbinding rhythms.
Starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica and Jerusalem, discover the haunting beauty of centuries-old Sephardi songs and legends in their endangered language, Ladino.
Epic tales of sailors and love lost to the seas, fantastic dreams and the intrigue of kings come alive in arrangements that crackle with rich musical storytelling, skillfully woven with historical vignettes and poetic tales.
Shifting from sweepingly cinematographic to a dark and penetrating quiet, it’s a return to this music’s roots as songs of the streets and of fiestas: alive with adventure and humor and grit.
