The 2nd CD Arrelumbre, released in 2015, presents also Sefardi melodies from Turkey or Macedonia, but with flamenco rhythms flavours, making them particularly frenzy and dancing.

Finally, the last CD Mistrál, who was just released in 2019 is all that much varied, undoubtedly more turned towards the Middle East, but still keeping the mark of flamenco and Ottoman melodies.
