News 2012

Dear friends,

Just a few words to say that we hope that 2012 will see a renewal of Maase Tuviya performance. We have some projects with Safed, Jerusalem and even Padova in Italy on the eve of Rosh hashana.
Meanwhile, we want to announce a CALL FOR PAPERS as the 43rd Congress of the International Society for the HIstory of Medicine will be held there and together with a group of Israeli scholars Etienne Lepicard is planning a session about Jews who got their MD from Padua in Renaissance times.
For those interested please be in touch directly with Dr Etienne Lepicard: elepicard@gmail.com

Yehiam performance, a video


From a Piut of Yehuda Halevi (which represents the begining of the family's journey in Zefat) - to French Ballet and Air de cour (Robert Ballard) , then to Italy's finest composers - among them the Jewish one, Salomone Rossi - and from there to Ladino music taken under the influences of Turkey (Una Ora) and Jerusalem (Entre Las Huertas), Tuviyah's Travels take you on a musical and narrative journey.

Here is a video of Entre Las Huertas, Yehiam, November 15, 2008. You can also click here, on Una Ora, to hear a mp3 version of this song. Enjoy!
