The musical expression of NOMADE is the story describing the wanderings and transitional stages of life of the Jewish people in exile.
The message of NOMADE is one of faith, hope and expectation for the restoration of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Until this event occurs the Jewish people continue their wanderings towards its fulfillment.
The composition of NOMADE was originally created and arranged as a cultural social event describing the transitions of a wanderer. It is a retrospective of Yehuda Glantz eclectic repertoire of 24 years of performance and composition.
