This intimate musical ritual of folk songs and stories celebrates the ancient times and the arrival of Sephardic Jews to the Balkans.
Drawing on mythology and folk tales, members of Saray Iluminado create an intricate emotional soundscape to transport its audience into the ancient lands of mermaids, unruly young lovers, and sorcerers. Journey through the taverns in which musicians, dancers and opium smokers sing and dance to songs of love and grief, hope and despair.
