L'Espace Hillel
Cultural and social Jewish Centre in Lyon


organizes, from Nov. 7 until Nov.  14, 2009

the first International Festival of Jewish Music

The music of different Jewish communities deserves a festival for themselves. It's done in Lyon. Klezmer, Judeo-Andalusia, Yiddish or Ladino songs, musical traditions of Jewish communities from all around the world are revisited by today's musicians. In the melting pot, which is the contemporary musical world, the Festival will try to rediscover the expression of a tradition which traversed centuries and continents.

This year's theme: New sounds of the contemporary Jewish music
