Mizrahi Music, Feminist Perspectives: An Afternoon of Performance & Discussion

This is a past event.

After years of marginalization, exoticization, and misrepresentation, Mizrahi musicians
are reclaiming their musical roots. Mizrahi Music, Feminist Perspectives explores the
histories and current revival of the diverse musical styles of Jewish women from the
Middle East and North Africa. This symposium will include scholarly analysis of this
musical movement, as well as performances that offer contemporary interpretations
of ancestral musical traditions and bring forgotten women’s voices to the fore.
