Embark on a musical trek to kingdoms long forgotten and bustling towns now vanished. Follow the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea, set to spellbinding arrangements of old Sephardi songs worthy of symphonic film scores. Wrap these tales up with lush soulful harmonies evoking Flamenco’s gutsiness and the longings of Fado, all combined with heart-pounding percussion and intricate soundscapes. Journey through the Balkans to the Mid-East beginning in Sarajevo and winding through Salónica and Jerusalem.
"Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom" is a sonic adventure masterfully brought to life by the Guy Mendilow Ensemble, a trio of world-class musicians from Israel, Palestine, Argentina and the U.S.
