Following 2021's online launch of KHOYA: Jewish Morocco Sound Archive with the trilingual online platform Ya Lalla: Jewish Saharans singing to birth, Dr Vanessa Paloma Elbaz will present a choice of new materials gathered from the public through the platform.

The event, featuring both Cambridge academics and Jewish and Muslim cultural stakeholders from Morocco, will also include poetry and a live chamber performance of new compositions celebrating fertility, inspired in the Ya Lalla platform's repertoire. These new stories and performances provide historic, linguistic, cultural and musicological context to how contemporary families ritualise cultural transmission, fertility and birth.
