Sephardic Picnic Soundtrack: A Lecture-Recital by Simone Salmon

lectures-symposia, student-recital
Royce Hall 314

Celebrating the rich historical roots of Sephardic culture in Los Angeles, this lecture-recital features small ensembles performing modern renditions of music heard in the community between the 1930s and 1980s. The program explores the family heritage of Simone Salmon, graduate student in Ethnomusicology, including her own grandparent's unique contribution to Los Angeles Jewish music and Sephardic culture through a collection of recordings documenting through song their paths of emigration from Turkey, through Havana, to the United States.

This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. It is co-sponsored by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and the Department of Ethnomusicology.
