Film, Video Ladino Songs & the Sephardic Diaspora
About this Item
- Ladino Songs & the Sephardic Diaspora
- Sarah Aroeste, Shai Bachar and Ellie Falaris Ganelin perform Ladino music and offer educational commentary about the language. Ladino is the language of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain during the Inquisition, spoken in the Mediterranean and Balkan regions before World War II-- now endangered because numerous speakers were killed during the Holocaust. Aroeste describes Ladino as a "pan-Mediterranean language crossing linguistic and cultural boundaries." A display of rare Ladino books curated by the Library of Congress accompanies this performance.
