Mzaza – Children of the Road – Performance

Mzaza’s show Children of the Road is based around the theme of migrations, inspired by Pauline Maudy’s Jewish family’s journey from Spain to Morocco, France and Australia over the last few centuries, by percussionist Jordan Stamos’s family history in the Turkish and Greek population exchange, and by the plight of displaced populations around the world today. The show will be toured with an optional visual presentation with projections to support the themes and stories that unfold throughout the performance.

Children of the Road presents a mix of originals and reworked traditional pieces. Much of the original material is in French and strongly inspired by Balkan music. Driven by her French and Spanish Sephardic roots, front woman Pauline Maudy sings in French, Spanish, Ladino and Turkish. She is a sublime and enchanting stage leader who delivers powerful and inspired performances. The musicianship of this outrageously tight group is equally impressive. Accordion, violin, percussion, double bass and Flamenco guitar – Mzaza has an army of talented composers and musicians. Through timeless melodies Mzaza embraces diversity, the old and the new, the familiar and the foreign.
