In this article, I propose an ethnography of the Festival Internacional Murcia Tres Culturas, and more particularly of the performance of the Sandra Bessis Trio to reflect on the means, role and impact of the representation of Jewish identity in a Spanish World Art/World Music festival. On one hand, we discern that the festival organizers sacralize the time of Convivencia to create a cosmopolitan event; and on the other that the Trio plays between the desacralization and the sacralization of this past, by using various performance strategies that mobilize instruments, language, repertoire and musicians identity to proceed it.
