The Pasadena Public Library hosted a night of "Sephardic Music and Storytelling" performed by Yuval Ron. You can watch the event in our Photos and Videos section.
Sephardic music has its roots in the musical traditions of the Jewish communities in Medieval Spain. Since then, it has picked up influences from Morocco, Argentina, Turkey, Greece and other places that Spanish Jews settled in after their expulsion from Spain in 1492. Lyrics were preserved by communities formed by the Jews expelled from the Iberian Peninsula. Music performed by artist Yuval Ron.
