“sung with perfection that is heart-stopping” Worthing Herald

An extraordinary fusion of extraordinary instruments and sounds from the rich cultural heritage of the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages.

Spain. July 1492: the deadline for the expulsion of the Jews. At twilight, a Jewish woman lights the lamps and starts up her spinning wheel. It is her last night in Seville.

Stories of integration, love, cultural heritage & radical intolerance experienced by a community of Jewish, Christian & Muslim women in Spain to a soundtrack of plaintive Sephardic songs & lively medieval Cantigas.
