"The concert by Alhambra was by far the most exciting event in this year's series." El Ey-pectador, Bogota, Colombia. Celebrating its 33rd season, the Sephardic music ensemble, Alhambra, performs the rhythmic and haunting music of Spain, the Balkans, North Africa, the Middle East, Israel, Armenia--as well as Yiddish songs.
