Moni OvadiaBorn in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1946, to a Jewish family of Sephardic origins.
After graduating from University with a degree in Political Sciences, he begins his artistic career as a researcher, singer and performer of ethnic and popular music from many countries. In 1984, he initiates his theatrical path: early on, he collaborates with international artists such as Bolek Polivka, Tadeusz Kantor, Franco Parenti; later, he becomes the author, director, actor and company head of his own brand of "musical theatre", in which previous experiences combine with his extraordinary gifts as an entertainer, orator and humorist. The central theme linking together his shows and his vast production of recordings and written publications, is the composite and multifaceted tradition, the "cultural and actual wanderings" of the Jewish people, of which he is son and representative, and the continuous immersion in different sounds and languages inherited from a culture which dictatorships and totalitarian ideologies of the 1900's tried to erase,from the face of the earth, treasures for future memory.
