Jewish Diaspora

Brooklyn-based Israeli multi-instrumentalist and singer Daphna Mor and performer/researcher Elizabeth Weinfield join host Debra Nagy for an exploration of Jewish identity and musical traditions. Daphna Mor will share how she has incorporated Jewish liturgical music into her performing life and demonstrate the art of Piyut, an oral tradition in which Jewish communities in Yemen, Iran, Morocco, Turkey, and elsewhere set ancient Hebrew liturgical texts to different tunes. Elizabeth Weinfield shares her research into Jewish Converso composer Leonora Duarte (1610 – ca. 1678), locating Duarte within the broader history of the Jewish Diaspora following the Spanish Inquisition.
