Bal·Kan: Honey and Blood – Watch the concert

Watch the concert by Jordi Savall, Hespèrion XXI and musicians from the Balkans, which took place on 18 December 2021 as part of the See Festival. The artists celebrated the diversity and the meeting of cultures in a moment of unity. Enjoy rich and varied sounds, and watch the interview with Jordi Savall which was done specially for the occasion.

On the occasion of the See Festival, the renowned gambist Jordi Savall explores the Sephardic and Ottoman repertoires of the Balkans with musicians from a region that the Ottomans named ‘Bal Kan’ (honey and blood), in the 15th century. A wonderful ode to memory and the survival of traditions.

Due to current health measures, the concert was held with a reduced audience who was specifically invited to the audio-visual recording. Experience a great moment of emotion, and listen to the interview with Jordi Savall for a behind‑the‑scenes glimpse of the Bal-Kan project.
