Time and transformation come to the forefront in this new exploration of Balkan rituals by early-music aficionado Jordi Savall. Beginning with kabbalah's creation story, The Cycles of Life travels through birth, youth, love, marriage, maturity, and death by painting an aural mosaic of Sephardic lullabies, Greek dances, Hebrew songs, Christian Orthodox chants, and Sufi devotional songs. Part of the 2013 White Light Festival.
