Experience one family’s remarkable story through the heartfelt melodies of Sofi & the Baladis. Journey through time to explore ancient Samaritan songs and a timeless search for balance, understanding, and belonging. With a unique blend of cultures and styles, this soulful ensemble will connect you to the heart of Israel.

Sofi & 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 multi-lingual concerts present new interpretations of songs from the ancient Samaritan community as well as compelling vocal and instrumental work from mid-20th century Arabic composers. Their music transcends genres and moves easily from deeply spiritual to an upbeat and rhythmic style that captivates and brings audiences to their feet. The commentary Sofi provides throughout the concert tells the moving and powerful story of the Samaritan Tsedaka family and their search for balance as they navigate the pathway between their Jewish and Arab identities.
