Not many people know that the history of the Jewish people includes a Golden Age of relative peace and prosperity in Spain that spanned several hundred years and ultimately ended in the 15th Century. One of the greatest Jewish scholars, Maimonides was born and lived in Spain during this period.

Over that time Jewish music and culture blossomed and a hybrid Hebrew-Spanish language often called Ladino was born. The development of Yiddish as a hybrid Hebrew-Germanic language is a parallel example.

Lying slightly to the left of a convenient tag, Carolina Moon's aural spectrum is a captivating canvas of world music with deeply ancient roots, deep song, and world class improvisations, at the heart of which lie the beautiful Ladino melodies of Judeo Spain.

Carolina Moon heads this world music project which began in a collaborative performance with Mark Isaacs at the Great Synagogue, Sydney 2002.

The NZ ensemble was formed in 2008 to explore medieval world song (and original / contemporary world music) within the context of a modern improvising group and assembles some of NZ's finest improvising artists with representatives from Sephardic, Western and New Zealand cultures.

Their interpretations remain true to the spirit of this beautiful music whilst bringing it into the present day.

In December we have a special treat for you. Carolina Moon and her ensemble have slipped in a performance for Christchurch as part of their South Island tour.

The concert will also include some material about the history of this Golden Age. If you aren't in Christchurch the full South Island tour itinerary may be found here:
