This CD takes part in the continuation of the work done by the Foundation of French Judaism on Sefardi music, a major component in the French Jewish music from today.
The musical creations claiming a Judeo-Spanish origin are quite rare nowadays. This is why the Foundation of French Judaism asked to 8 composers/ executant the creation of a new repertoire of Judeo-Spanish music for one or more guitars, sometimes voices, with the only requirement to take support from a thematic and traditional material. The result is outstanding! From the musical arrangements of traditional songs by the Parvarim, to the Suite Séfarade by Jorge Cardoso for two guitars, from the sweet daydreams of the melodies by Narcis Bonet to the complex pieces by Gil Shohat, this CD, led by the virtuoso guitarist Liat Cohen, takes us on to a musical trip where enjoyment is overall present.
