Mor Kabasi

Date: 16 Nov 2008 - 20:00
End Date: 16 Nov 2008 - 23:00
Event details: Described by London's Jewish Chronicle as a purveyor of "Spine tingling Gypsy Music", young London based Israeli singer Mor Karbasi sings in Ladino, Spanish, Hebrew and on rarer occasions, English. Fortune has brought her a wonderful singing voice and she puts it to most excellent use.

Not many songs still survive from 1492, when the Ladino speaking Jewish population in Spain fled the Inquistion - only the most beautiful are kept over such a period. Mor is bringing some of these songs back to a wider public. Her writing has been considerably assisted by her interesting lineage. Her Mother has Moroccan Jewish descent and her Father Persian Jewish descent. She has been and indeed is, an avid supporter of Flamenco which provides a strong flavour throughout all her songs.

Her early musical performances were with Pena Flamenca in Jerusalem which immersed her in Flamenco while her mother played Moroccan piyyutim (liturgical poems) and sang Andalucian Jewish ballads at their home and continues to be a constant influence on her young daughter.
