The diversity of Turkish culture is reflected in its rich musical traditions, among them the music of Jews who lived during the Ottoman Empire. We are privileged to present Ahmet Erdogdular, a world renowned musician, who will present songs of Jewish composers and cantors during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and Upper West Sider Daisy Sadaka Braverman, a Turkish-American linguist and singer, who will offer songs in Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), the language unique to Sephardic Jews. The afternoon will include Turkish desserts! Co-sponsored by The Turkish Cultural Center.
