Israeli folk band Baladino, with members from Tel Aviv and Berlin, performed Sunday night, Sept. 11, at the Macus Jewish Community Center. The band specializes in fresh but authentic takes on Sephardic and Ladino melodies, creating a Mediterranean sound featured this year on its second studio album, “Nedudim.”
