Journey through the music of the Mediterranean as the Israeli folk band Baladino blends centuries-old melodies from the cultural melting pot that is their homeland. Baladino, a fresh and exhilarating Israeli world music ensemble will visit Midland Center for the Arts as part of a multi-city Midwest tour coordinated by Minneapolis-based Arts Midwest. The five-member ensemble takes its audience on a joyful journey through music of the Mediterranean region—music carried to Israel by people from Spain, Eastern Europe, Turkey, and Arabic countries. Midland Center for the Arts was selected as one of only nine Midwestern cities to host the 2013–15 Arts Midwest World Fest and is the only partner community chosen in Michigan.
