About the event

Join us for the closing concert on June 11.

4:00 PM / Ya Ghorbati: Divas in Exile

Laura Elkeslassy will perform a concert weaving together the stories of Judeo-Arab divas from the last century with folk and sacred music. The concert is a musical excavation of Elkeslassy’s family history in Morocco, France, and Israel. Developed in collaboration with Ira Khonen Temple, Ya Ghorbati looks across time and space to tell a tale of political upheaval, exile, and displacement—ultimately questioning the supposed binary of Arab and Jew.

Featuring Ira Khonen Temple (music direction, keys, accordion), April Centrone (percussion), Mehrnam Rastegari (kamanche), Rachid Halilhal (oud), and Marwan Allam (bass).
