Hailed as “a new musical language that unites the East & West” Tarik & Julia Banzi present programs integrate a holistic approach to Andalusian music combining Andalusi’, Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) and Spanish Andalusian with contemporary compositions rooted in Andalusian legacy that embrace the multicultural world we live in today.

A unique group of musicians, schlars, singers, dancers and visual artists from diverse countries the Maghreb (Morocco), USA, Spain and the Far East, the Al-Andalus ensemble brings the spirit of Al-Andalus from the past into the present. Our message is to bridge Eastern and Western cultures through music and bring the spirit of convivencia of Al-Andalus back to live amongst us all.

The music of Tarik & Julia Banzi with their ensemble Al-Andalus ( is a fusion of folkloric beauty and contemporary tension epitomizing our situation in the modern world. Together, they create a new music that challenges traditionalists and leaves the adventurous wanting more. The Banzi’s have given a holistic treatment to the oldest, continuous tradition of art music, the extraordinary Andalusian heritage. Not since multi-cultural, medieval al-Andalus (c.711-1492 a.d.) have casidas, noubas, cantigas, Andalusian and flamenco dance merged together with Judeo-Spanish, ladino songs to combine as living, breathing art forms.

To see Al-Andalus play will make you look at art with a different eye, and music with a more readily challenged ear. Al-Andalus’s sonic genealogy draws from a rich array of root sources — Arabic, Castilian, Jewish, Romany, Jazz and African to create a refreshing, contemporary, contemplative music.
