Yuval Ron Ensemble

  • Skirball Cultural Center 2701 N Sepulveda Blvd Los Angeles, CA, 90049 United States

Performing the concert program “My Heart Is in the East: Mystical Music and Dance of the Hebrew Tribes,” Israeli Angeleno Yuval Ron and an ensemble featuring Moroccan-Israeli vocalist Elinor Sitrish and sacred dance artist Mayaya take the stage with their intensely moving and adventurous pan–Middle Eastern music.

Formed in 1999, the Yuval Ron Ensemble includes Jewish, Christian, and Muslim artists who strive to create musical bridges between people of diverse faiths and ethnic backgrounds. As they pay homage to diverse Jewish cultures of Morocco, Yemen, Iraq, and Israel—from euphoric Kabbalistic Hebrew dances to fiery Sephardic-Andalusi songs—the ensemble creates a synthesis of styles that is both deeply traditional and boldly innovative.

Arrive early to listen to a DJ set by KPFK’s Yatrika Shah-Rai.
