When a Bulgarian and a Turkish Jew meet, they speak Ladino
After the expulsion from Spain & Portugal, Jews fled to many different places.  Most made their way to other parts of Europe and the powerful Ottoman Empire in search of safety.  But some joined the fleets destined for the New World, India, or South Asia, playing pivotal roles in the exploration, commerce, and expansion of the 15th century. 
Wherever they settled, they brought with them their own language, music, and memories of the Golden Age on the Iberian Peninsula.  In a voyage through time, we will meet the Sephardim, hear their stories, and sing their songs.
