PERFORMANCE | What’s the most Jewish cultures you’ve ever seen represented in an hour? Dahlia Dior’s music is just like her history—a unique blend of Sephardi, Ashkenazi, Yemenite, and Moroccan, with some German, Romanian, and Polish for garnish, performed in 20 languages. Joining Dahlia will be poet Yvonne Green, delivering evocative music-backed renditions of her vivid and enthralling poetry reflecting on her own Boukharan background. Together, they’ll take you around the Jewish world with finesse and flair.
