The PAS Music Center Presents
"When I Wake Up" The Music of the Abuyudaya Jews of Uganda
Thu | Apr 4 | 7:30 pm | Eli M. Black Lifelong Learning Center
PAS Ensemble Member Mike Cohen

Putti Village, Uganda, has a population of about 1,500 people, with approximately equal numbers of villagers practicing Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and living in harmony. The Abuyudaya (Jews) of Putti are an orthodox Sephardi community, the only such community in Uganda. Mike Cohen recorded a CD in Putti that fused East African, Arab, and Jewish music sung in Hebrew, Ladino, Lugandan, and English. He will share some of these transformative recordings, as well as tell the tale of making the CD under singularly challenging conditions.
