One of the world’s foremost experts in the music of the Sephardic Diaspora (including repertoire from the Judeo-Arab, Judeo-Spanish, Argentinian, Middle-Eastern, Northern and Eastern European musical traditions), singer/guitarist/folklorist Gerard Edery is known for his vivid appreciation for how disparate cultures overlap, parallel each other, and often borrow from one another. Fluent in a broad range of ethnic folk styles and traditions from around the world, Edery sings in 15 languages and speaks in four—energizing traditional music through interpretations for contemporary audiences. His ensemble has been featured at Carnegie Hall, The United Nations, The Smithsonian Institute, and the Fez International Festival of Sacred Music in Morocco, among many other venues. Presented by Town Hall as part of the Global Rhythms series.
