When A Song Boards A Transcontinental Flight
The Guy Mendilow Ensemble traces the journey taken by songs, starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica, and Jerusalem.
Led by Guy Mendilow, himself a citizen of the world, the ensemble breathes new life into traditional melodies, re-interpreting and re-imagining them for a modern audience.
The ensemble performs Saturday night in Nashua, NH and Sunday in Lexington as part of the Boston Jewish Music Festival and they join us now in studio.
