OHIO----The Sarajevo Haggadah, an illustrated Spanish manuscript that has traversed Europe and points east since the calfskin parchment was created in the 14th century, will be the focus of “Music of the Book,” Merima Kjulco’s work for accordion, piano and video. The well-worn manuscript won’t attend the Oct. 28 performance at the Cleveland Museum of Art; it is locked away inside the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo, a city that continues to speak volumes to Kjulco, an artist so busy performing she had no time for an interview.
