Middle Eastern/North African Jewish Poetic Songs (Piyyutim) — From Pulpit to Pop Chart — with Dr. Galeet Dardashti
Join Dr. Galeet Dardashti, prominent performer and cultural anthropologist, and Prof. Yonatan Malin (CU Boulder) for this interactive program on Jewish piyyut (liturgical poetry and song) traditions from the Middle East and North Africa. Come hear, study, and learn several of these beautiful religious songs, and gain an understanding of their shifting cultural significance throughout Jewish history. The presentation will include material from Dr. Dardashti’s research on the Mizrahi piyyut movement in Israeli pop and rock music today. This program is part of a concert series offered by the CU Boulder Program in Jewish Studies and College of Music exploring klezmer music, Yiddish song, and Middle Eastern/North African Jewish poetic songs (piyyutim). Blending performance and discussion, this concert series is made possible by funding from the CU Boulder Office for Outreach and Engagement Arts and Humanities Initiative, the Roser Visiting Artist Program in the College of Music, and the David Shneer Fund for Community Programming, Public Scholarship, and the Arts.
