In the first half of the XVIth century, several families of Portuguese Marranos who fled the persecutions from the Inquisition, settled in Bordeaux, and then in the region of Bayonne (France).
During nearly 200 years, these Jewish communities developed an intense musical activity.
The Portuguese rite is the first radio show, talking of the Andalusian music Diasporas, hosted by Sabine Amsellem on Radio TAF.
Sabine Amsellem taught piano as well as music theory and culture at the Paris conservatory. She then settled in Israel where she became producer of the radio programs “Andalusian Music” and “Music Forever” on Radio TAF in Tel Aviv.
In case the music player doesn't open, you must allow the opening of pop-ups for the website iemj.org in your browser settings.
