Notes Folk Music Of Israel: The Moroccan Influence

Israeli Jewish music from Morocco has its roots first with the Spanish Jews and then after the Inquisition, with Jews who fled to North Africa.

1) Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is chanted by a Moroccan. 1:23 - 2:57

2) This Jewish Moroccan wedding dance uses Arabic instruments and has a unique sound. 3:30 - 6:16

3) This romantic song, sung by a male singer with a small male back-up group is played with Arabic instruments. 6:41 - 12:38
