Notes This album includes seven songs of Israeli origin, as well as selections from Sephardic, Ladino and other backgrounds. The orchestral accompaniment by Shimon Cohen is both imaginative and tasteful, adding flavor and texture to each number. The ease of Cantor Lissek's musical interpretations makes this a most pleasant and enjoyable listening experience.
