Baladino to perform at the Dakota Jazz Club, Minneapolis

This February, Baladino’s Arts Midwest World Fest tour will include a special stop at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis for a public concert on Saturday, February 22 at 8:00 pm.

Baladino is a new collaboration of Israeli folk musicians, whose sounds are informed by the many cultures that have converged on Israel: Ladino music from the Sephardic Jews of 15th-century Spain, Klezmer music from the Yiddish culture of Eastern Europe, and Turkish, and Arabic traditions from Israel’s neighboring countries. Along with the many traditions the band represents, members also create new arrangements that bring out their individual musical talents.

Touring with the ensemble in 2014 are:

  • Yonnie Dror (flute, saxophone, clarinet, didgeridoo, shofar, zurna, bagpipes)
  • Yshai Afterman (percussion)
  • Yael Badash (vocals)
  • Daniel Sapir (string bass)
  • Tomer Moked (violin, guitar, arranger)

In addition to the Dakota Jazz Club concert, Baladino will conduct a performance for employees at 3M corporate headquarters in Saint Paul, as well as workshops in Saint Paul public schools. Following their time in the Twin Cities, the ensemble will resume their regularly-scheduled Arts Midwest World Fest engagements with week-long residencies in Rice Lake, WI; Sisseton, SD; Grand Forks, ND; Bemidji, MN; and Orange City, IA.
