Tamar Ilana & Ventanas—Sunset Concerts at the Skirball
Los Angeles debut! Fronted by powerhouse vocalist and dancer Tamar Ilana, the Toronto-based Ventanas reimagine age-old Mediterranean melodies and flamenco grooves.
Inspired by a childhood touring the world with her mother, an ethnomusicologist, Ilana sings about migration and identity in Ladino, Spanish, Bulgarian, Hebrew, French, Romani, and Arabic. Be enchanted by their dynamic mix of contemporary interpretations of ancient ballads and original compositions.
