The Oud Festival again presents one of the most marvelous performances to date, presented in the 2007 Festival: Adumei Hasfatot, the ensemble of percussionist-composer Rea Mochiach and vocal artist and guitarist Berry Sakharof. They will present poems by one of the greatest poets of Spain, Solomon Ibn Gabirol, who lived and was active in Andalucia. The performance has been presented several times since its premier at the Oud Festival and is preserved in a deluxe album with the same name that has won the appreciation of the public and critical praise.
Mochiach and Sakharof composed the original music, which is attentive to the rare and unique encounter that occurred In Spain between high Jewish culture and high Arab culture and the renewal of Christianity. Sounds of the past and present have been connected to a single musical whole, bearing the taste and smell of the celebrations of poetry, philosophy and lust in Muslim Spain. Now Mochiach and Sakharof return and update this time travel that connects the world of the great poets of Spain with our world.
