Rooftop Concert: Duo Andalus
Hosted By: Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan
Duo Andalus’s music is an intimate encounter between voice and strings, cultures and sounds—a journey of sounds woven by traditional and original songs from the Mediterranean Sea to the North African Ocean. Moroccan, Jewish, Sephardic, flamenco, and Middle Eastern music finds its common roots through the voice of Lala Tamar, accompanied by guitarist Ofer Ronen. At this powerful, multidisciplinary, and intimate rooftop concert, experience many cultures in one.
The artists behind Duo Andalus, Lala Tamar and Ofer Ronen, have been creating together for the last seven years. Although they live on two different continents, their passionate musical, artistic, and soulful dialogue continues to evolve and takes on new forms.
Raised in Israel by parents of Moroccan and Brazilian descent, vocalist Lala Tamar’s joyously complex songbook reflects her diverse background and boundless curiosity. Her creative inspiration for this show lies predominantly with the traditional music of the Jewish women of Spanish Morocco. Sung in the singular Haquetiya dialect, this little-heard folk art was acknowledged beyond its indigenous borders as little more than an ethnographic novelty until Tamar began researching its history and adapting the work to a more modern sound.
