Music among the Crypto-Jews of Portugal: An Almost Vanished World
Hosted By: Qesher
After the expulsion of Jews from Portugal, some stayed as Crypto-Jews. The early 20th century saw the “discovery” of the Jews of Belmonte and the northeast region of Tras-os-Montes, who had lived in isolation with few cultural contacts with the outside world. Judith Cohen will introduce the individuals she interviewed, and explain how songs and recited prayers work in both the religious and secular contexts.
