    Guy Mendilow Ensemble

     The Guy Mendilow Ensemble, spearheaded by charismatic Israeli composer/performer Guy Mendilow. is an award-winning sextet comprised of world-class musicians representing Argentina, Israel, Palestine, Japan, the USA and the UK. Formed in 2004, the Ensemble has been enthusiastically received in venues ranging from world and traditional music festivals to performing arts centers, progressive Jewish organizations and universities.

    Starting in ancient Spain and winding through Sarajevo, Salonica and Jerusalem, the Ensemble brings to life the adventures and legends of traditional Sephardi songs, sung in the endangered Judeo-Spanish language, Ladino. Epic tales of sailors and love lost to the seas, fantastic dreams, and the intrigue of kings abound in arrangements that crackle with rich musical storytelling, seamlessly interwoven with poetic narration and poignant historical vignettes. It’s what the Chicago Tribune has called “…a folk music of hope and affirmation, sophisticated in its delivery but easily accessible to listeners anywhere.”
