Sofi and the Baladis, a five-member ensemble led by singer Sofi Tsedaka, features soulful and richly textured performances of an array of musical traditions that lie at the heart of Israel’s diverse and historic cultures.  The group’s multilingual concerts, presenting compelling mid-20th century Arabic vocal and instrumental works, transcend genres and move easily from something deeply spiritual to an upbeat/rhythmic style that captivates and brings audiences to their feet. The commentary Sofi provides throughout the concert tells the story of the Samaritan Tsedaka family, a moving and powerful take of that family’s—and Sofi’s—search for balance, understanding, faith, and belonging as they navigate the pathway between their Jewish and Arab identities.
