Combining flamenco guitar, ethnic percussion, klezmer clarinet, and folk songs from the Middle East, Levoná Ensemble follows melodies and styles that traveled from one side of the ancient world to the other, bringing them together to explore new possibilities. This celebration of sounds is intermingled with storytelling, drawing from folk traditions as well as original stories.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Each member of Levoná is an accomplished musician in his own genre. Sharing stages with artists around the world, each brings his own experiences and abilities into this collaboration, thus creating a rich tapestry that is at once a taste of the orient and a new creation all on its own. The band first came together in the highly acclaimed Bay Area musical Love Sick in 2017, and went on to receive the Theatre Bay Area Award for Best Ensemble along with the rest of the cast, as well as other awards. They have since continued to perform as an independent group, keeping that same energy alive in both dance and concert halls.
