Tamar Ilana & Ventanas

With a DJ Set by Glenn Red

Thursday, August 15, 8:00 pm (Doors and DJ set at 6:30 pm)

About the Program

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. 

“Potent, vibrato-drenched vocals.”—Downbeat
