Apollo’s Fire Presents: Exile and Resilience: Music of the Jewish and African Diasporas
Performing on historical instruments, Grammy-winning ensemble Apollo’s Fire brings to life the music of the past for audiences of today.
Though stolen from their homeland and scattered across the world, both Jews and Africans found strength in their music. Discover the rhythms of the Jewish ghetto in 1620—dances and prayers from the Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Jewish baroque, and North African traditions. A company of 24 musicians—including Jewish, Arab, and African American artists—raises their voices in love and celebration.
