Apollo's Fire
At See Event Details
Thursday, February 4th - Sunday, February 7th

Cast out of Jerusalem, cast out of Spain. The Spanish Jews in their travels absorbed the colorful musical accents of Italy and the Middle East, including exotic percussion.

The daily rhythms of life – love, rejection, feasting and celebration – culminate in the mystical prayers of Shabbat.
