Gerard Edery is one of the greatest names in World Music but for sure the greatest name in the Sephardi music genre. He has achieved great accomplishments and has brought the Sephardi music beyond its niche border. Gerard Edery will be performing at the 1st edition of the American Sephardi Music Festival for two concerts with two different repertoires.
Curated by David Serero for the American Sephardi Federation, this festival celebrates its very first edition on August 24th, 27th and 28th 2017 at the Center for Jewish History in New York. On August 24th, Mr Edery will open this unique Music Festival with a program “Three Religions, Three Faiths” and on August 27th, with “Treasures of World Song”.
