Artistic Direction: Tamar Ilana & Ventanas
Tamar Ilana & Ventanas present their new multimedia show, MISTRAL. Tamar Ilana’s “potent, vibrato-drenched vocals” (Downbeat), backed by virtuosic musicianship, are framed by visuals relating to MISTRAL's overarching themes of migration and Tamar’s childhood experiences gathering songs from across the Mediterranean. With songs in Ladino, Spanish, Bulgarian, Hebrew, French, Romani and Arabic, Tamar Ilana & Ventanas intertwine composite rhythms with flamenco dance to create an all-encompassing world of their own, leading audiences down the less traveled paths of the Mediterranean and mixing in contemporary interpretations of ancient ballads, original compositions and new choreographies. “I’m a huge admirer,” says Leslie Feist." Vocals, dance: Tamar Ilana Oud: Demetrios Petsalakis Percussion: Derek Gray Violin: Jessica Hana Deutsch Flamenco guitar: Benjamin Barrile Bass: Tyler Emond
