The Beauty and the Sea

Mor Karbasi’s debut album, The Beauty and the Sea, is a brave new contribution to Sephardic music. Here, Karbasi, an Israeli-born descendent of Moroccan and Persian Jews, now based in London, performs traditional Ladino songs and her own Ladino-inspired compositions.

Singing in Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese, and Ladino—the language passed down to her from her mother who would sing Andalusian Jewish ballads at home—Karbasi makes evident in her music the magic involved in her richly complex heritage.
