The fifth Days of Jewish Music festival will take place at Bet Hatefutsot in Tel Aviv from February 28 to March 2.
The three-day event covers expansive musical and cultural areas, taking in a rich slew of intriguing concerts, workshops and seminars.
Festival producer Jeffrey Fisher has lined up a programme that covers almost every aspect of Jewish music culture across the globe, kicking off with a Ladino music concert called From Andalusia to Saloniki.
Fans of Hassidic music, or anyone looking to get a deeper understanding of the genre, should enjoy the experiential Hassidic music workshop and tribute to legendary American nigun composer Ben Zion Shenker, who died last year at the age of 91.
Then the From Cairo to Morocco workshop, on the last day of the programme, presents some gems from the Shaabi genre of singing practiced by Moroccan Jewry, fronted by singer-composer Ariel Cohen.
