Internationally acclaimed band brings a blend of Mediterranean Jewish and modern electronic music to Los Angeles on March 3rd

Coming to Los Angeles March 3rd!

Internationally-acclaimed folk artists Baladino are back in Los Angeles by popular demand!

Based in Berlin and Tel Aviv, Baladino performs a fresh and deeply authentic blend of traditional Jewish melodies and modern electronic music. Playing everything from Egyptian darbuka to Armenian duduk, from Ladino classics to rarely heard tunes, they create a vibrant whole. Baladino's musicianship takes songs and jumps into impromptu jams driven by Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves, rock, and electronic music.

Joining Baladino for the evening are special guests La Victoria, an all-female mariachi band from Los Angeles.

At 8 PM on March 3rd, join Baladino for a night of celebrating vibrant cultures, artists, and spirituality at the Pico Union Project (1153 Valencia St, Los Angeles, CA 90015). Tickets are available at

Thanks to the Consulate General of Israel for sponsoring this very special event.

With members hailing from Berlin and Tel Aviv, Baladino is a Mediterranean folk band that offers fresh, yet deeply authentic interpretations of Sephardic and Ladino melodies and brings this tradition back into full, fresh dialogue with its trans-Mediterranean past, using extended technique, subtle electronics and improvisation to dust off the predominant heavy-handed approach to Ladino music. With stunning vocals, unexpected instruments, and a pitch-perfect sense of arrangement, the Israeli group melds everything from Egyptian darbuka to Armenian duduk, from Ladino classics to rarely heard tunes, into a sonically vibrant, organic whole. During Baladino’s live performances, songs often form a jumping-off point for instrumental improvisations driven by Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves, yet embracing rock and electronic influences.
