Duo Mantar came to UTD on Feb. 4 during their national tour to recapture the cultural majesty of 75 years of Israeli music. Presented by the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies and AHT, award-winning American guitarist Adam Levin and Jacob Reuven — mandolin professor at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance — performed traditional music and retold the story of a Holocaust survivor.

“Be curious about traditions, cultures and musical styles that you’re perhaps unfamiliar with, and through that openness, you’ll discover worlds near and far you’re unfamiliar with,” Levin said.
