What a dream come true it was to perform my Monastir album LIVE in N. Macedonia during the month of July. Recorded during the pandemic, the album had never been performed in front of a live audience. Now was our chance. I brought together 3 Israeli musicians and 3 Macedonian musicians (and me!), as we presented performances at three of the largest music festivals in the country: Skopje Summer Festival, Ohrid Summer Fest, and Bitola Lokum Festival. Words cannot begin to describe what an amazing experience it was to see my vision - of musical collaboration celebrating the lost Sephardic community of Monastir - become reality. Here's just a small taste in pictures:
I hope my ancestors would be proud!
