For twenty years the Toronto-based group Beyond the Pale has been making its distinctive brand of boundary-busting Eurofolk fusion. Influenced by jazz, classical, bluegrass, reggae, klezmer, and Balkan musical traditions, Beyond the Pale’s music traverses a vast and exotic musical landscape. LA Weekly calls their work “a bracingly modern, mind-blowing flight into a very new Jewish-Balkan sonic atmosphere.”
Composer-performer Merima Ključo’s multimedia work for accordion, piano, and video traces the dramatic story of one of Jewish culture’s most treasured illuminated manuscripts. Drawing from various musical traditions, Ključo follows the Haggadah’s travels from medieval Spain to twentieth-century Bosnia, where it was hidden and then rescued during World War II, to its restoration by Sarajevo’s National Museum in the 1990s.
