Notes Music Of Israel: Sephardic Tunes

The Sephardim, descendents of Spanish Jews who escaped the terrors of the inquisition, established themselves in other European centers and developed a rich culture of their own. In more recent times the majority of Sephardic Jews have settled in Israel and their culture has become part of Israeli life.
