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
Arrive early to hear a DJ set by Glenn Red of Afro Funké and La Junta!
Listen to Tamar Ilana & Ventanas song "Tutti Frutti."
