Since 1994, “Jewish music” has emerged as an important yet ambiguous mode of cultural expression in Argentina, making audible Jewish history in Latin America and affirming a contemporary Jewish presence in the region. This lecture explores the intersection of practices of cultural renewal and the uses of memory as a Jewish musical resource in public and private spaces in Buenos Aires.

This lecture is sponsored by The Jewish Music Forum, The Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music, The Mickey Katz Endowed Chair in Jewish Music, and UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies
