Sephardic and Mizrahi music from an all-women ensemble.
Traditional songs from Spain's Golden Age sung in Spanish, Ladino, Hebrew, Arabic, and other languages.
This group, formed in 1977, was at the time a bold experiment in diversity that brought together artists coming out of Sephardic, African, Indian and Middle Eastern traditions.
Middle Eastern-influenced music composed by Basya Schechter and played on tabla, oud, clay drums, harmonium along with guitar, cello, clarinet and more.
Employing such instruments as oud, santur, percussion, and violin, Basya Schecter taps into the music of the Arab world, the former Soviet Union, India, China, and beyond for her first solo CD.
Gorgeous vocals, with a mix of traditional and original tunes.
