Judith Cohen at the David Schroeder Music and Culture Series

September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr. Judith R. Cohen is a Canadian scholar and singer known for her work in Sephardic music and related traditions. Her ethnomusicological work and her life as a performer are intertwined. Village songs of Spain and Portugal, narrative ballads and stories in English and pan-European traditions, Balkan singing, songs of French Canada, Yiddish, and music of Medieval Europe are among her performance and workshop repertoires. As an ethnomusicologist, Dr. Cohen has spent many years of fieldwork on the lives of Portuguese Bnei Anusim, often known as Crypto-Jews, direct descendants of the Jews who maintained their identity throughout the centuries of the Inquisition.
