Celebrate Mimouna! An Evening of Music and Conversation

Samir LanGus and Itamar Borochov
Samir LanGus and Itamar Borochov

Join musicians Samir LanGus and Itamar Borochov for a musical evening in celebration of the holiday Mimouna.

Mimouna is a North African Sephardi holiday that marks the end of Passover. Traditionally an evening of good food (especially breads!), we’ll begin our night with a concert of Sebt Gnawa, a traditional Jewish-Moroccan musical style performed by Grammy-nominated Samir LanGus and Itamar Borochov. Afterward, both musicians will share more about their ties to this music and their belief in multicultural collaboration. Come and experience this distinctive music for yourself!

More about Gnawa: Gnawa is the ritual trance music of Morocco’s Black communities, and Sebt Gnawa is the style of Jewish Gnawa music.

All are welcome to this online celebration. Registration is free.
