In this episode, Ivy and Max talk to Simone Salmon, an ethnomusicologist and musician who specializes in Sephardic, Ladino, and Ottoman music. They discuss music as a cross-cultural bridge, differences between Ottoman and Western musical styles, the Turkish makam, and the story of Simone's great-grandparents Isaac and Emily Sene.
