Guy Mendilow Ensemble Kicks Off Fall Tour / by Chris Baum

Guy Mendilow Ensemble's tour of the Pacific Northwest begins tomorrow night in Red Bluff, CA. The group will be performing "Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom", a collection of compositions originating from old melodies and songs from the Ladino tradition.

About Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom:

Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished. Follow the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, all set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores. Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco's gutsiness and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes.

Journey through the Balkans to the Mid-East beginning in Sarajevo and winding through Salonica and Jerusalem. Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom is a sonic adventure masterfully brought to life by the Guy Mendilow Ensemble, an award-winning quintet of world-class musicians with members hailing from Israel, Palestine, Argentina, the UK and the USA. This ensemble of internationally savvy world musicians delivers a richly textured global experience of haunting beauty.
