Alon Wallach was born in 1980 in Jerusalem, Israel. His musical education began with the violin, and later he developed as a guitarist, completing his degree at the music academy in Stuttgart, Germany. Early in his studies, Wallach joined Asamblea Mediterranea, an ensemble specialized in the music of the Sephardic Jews. Beginning as lead guitarist, Wallach is now also the arranger and musical director of the ensemble.
The Jews who have settled in Spain (Ivrit: Sepharad) since the beginning of the common era, called themselves Sephardim. Sephardic music has its roots in Spain, where between the 12th and 15th century a unique symbiosis of Muslim, Christian and Jewish culture developed. This edition will give choirs the opportunity to learn more about the extraordinary world of sephardic music.
