Music – from cantors to the Japanese street marching band
As every year, we will host stars and young, original artists.
The Festival will be inaugurated by the grand, première concert of cantors in the Nożyk Synagogue. This year, brothers Yaakov and Shulem Lemmer from the United States will give performance. They will be joined on stage by the cantoral choir Kolot Israel (Israeli Voices) from Jerusalem.
The Festival’s finale will feature the show of the gripping and charismatic violinist, Ara Malikian, who mixes and blends Jewish, Arabic, Argentinian, Spanish and Roma themes in his music. We will hear surprising interpretations of classical masterpieces composed by, nonetheless, Vivaldi, Mozart, Paganini, the iconic compositions by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie as well as pieces written originally by the amazing artist. Malikian’s concert is a show during which the unique violin playing comes with the amazing choreography, dance, costumes, colors and special effects. It’s a force of nature!
