I warmly invite you to get to know my musical projects which are the result of my long-term artistic search: UNDER THE SKY OF SEPHARAD is a proposal of concerts of Sephardic music, which has been my passion for years. My proposal are four different programs in various styles and with different musical instruments.

Apart from that I offer programs connected with broadly understood Jewish culture as well as concerts referring to the ancient music of Spain and to the tradition of Latin American countries. After each concert there is a possibility to teach some songs to the audience. I can also lead a separate vocal workshop related to the theme of the concert.

Next to each program you will find a detailed description of the concert together with fragments of some songs.

CONCERT PROPOSALS

UNDER THE SKY OF SEFARAD – Sephardic music

 
Firstly I would like to invite you to watch a 7-minute film from some concerts of Sephardic music with the participation of different musicians:
 
XX CHANTERELLE Festival and JAZZ JAMBORE Festival (Poland), X INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF SEPHARDIC MUSIC in Cordoba (Spain), ANCIENT MUSIC FESTIVAL (Mexico), UNDER THE SKY OF SEPHARAD (Polish Radio).

SEPHARDIC SONGS PROGRAMS:

In the program we will hear Sephardic songs in new, modern arrangements, which refer to the ethno-jazz trend. In the arrangement one can hear the mixture of different musical worlds: from ancient and ethno music through classical music till jazz and intuitive music.

Anna Riveiro Trio:
Anna Riveiro: vocal, classical guitar, hurdy gurdy, concert scenario.
Marcin Olak: acoustic and electric guitar, darabuka, arrangements of pieces. 
Michał Pindakiewicz: classical and acoustic guitar, udu, arrangements of pieces.
 
 

This program refers to the musical tradition of Medieval Spain as well as to the way of performing Sephardic music in the Arabic part of the Mediterranean Sea Basin. The instruments and arrangements of the musical pieces emphasize oriental influences in Sephardic music.

Anna Riveiro ensemble:
Anna Riveiro: vocal, guitar, artistic direction.
Marta Maślanka: santur, darabuka, riqq. Wojciech Lubertowicz: darabuka, udu, daff. Michał Pindakiewicz: guitar. Mohammad Rasouli: ney flutes, tar, daff

Arrangements of Sephardic songs for two guitars evoke the connections of this music with the culture of Spain. The songs will be performed with one or two guitars and a capella. Warm, sensual voice of the singer excellently matches the guitarist’s virtuosic playing and the main topic of the concert is love…
