Captive Maidens and Gallant Knights: The Sephardi Ballad Tradition
Hosted By: Congregation Beth Shalom (Northbrook, IL)
The most popular form of poetry in fifteenth-century Spain was the ballad (romansa), enjoyed by court and masses alike. After their Expulsion from Spain, Sephardi Jews took these narrative songs into exile in Morocco and the Ottoman Empire. Many of those medieval Spanish romansas survived into the twentieth century.
