About the event
The Segal Centre is thrilled to share KOLOT | VOICES, a showcase that shines light on diverse Jewish voices from Canada and beyond. Through a series of interactive offerings with leading creators working in different mediums, KOLOT looks to spotlight artistic voices whose stories and work looks beyond the white and/or Ashkenazi Jewish experience.
Li Habibi: An Andalusi Singing Workshop with Laura Elkeslassy For centuries, Jews and Muslims have shared Andalusi music across the Iberic Peninsula and the Maghreb. In this workshop, Laura Elkeslassy will teach songs derived from the classical Andalusi canon of Morocco – Al Ala - in both Arabic and Hebrew. Come experience the interweaving of Arabic and Hebraic Poetry in this common ancestral musical heritage.
Kolot/Voices is supported by a JCF Nova Grant
