Commissioned by the Jay Phillips Center, Embracing the Beloved was a concert of music from the Sephardic (Judeo-Spanish), Carnatic (South Indian), and Persian cultural traditions.  Co-creators David Jordan Harris, Nirmala Rajasekar, and Maryam Yusefzadeh explored shared human values and spiritual aspirations reflected in the three distinctive musical traditions.  Each lead artist performed with a musical ensemble specializing in the music of their tradition—Voices of Sepharad (Sephardic), Roboyat (Persian), and a group of nationally recognized artists working in the Carnatic tradition.  The musicians also performed together new compositions emerging from the underlying themes of Embracing the Beloved
