Baladino, a fresh Israeli world music ensemble, will perform at DeKalb High School at 7 p.m. Sept. 26.
This group performs centuries-old melodies and sounds carried to Israel from Spain, Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Middle East. The members of the ensemble blend these far-flung influences with authenticity and conviction.
