Emile Zrihan

Emile Zrihan (or “Zrihen” according to the transliteration), a famous cantor of Moroccan origin living in Israel, is often associated with the Andalusian Orchestra of Israel in which he sang for years as a soloist.

His powerful counter-tenor voice allows him to perform a varied repertoire of sacred and secular songs, in Arabic and Hebrew, from mawwâl (popular Arabic poetry with an essentially amorous theme) to piyutim (religious poetry) and bakashot (praise to God).

In this playlist, discover some of his best-known interpretations, such as Ashir Shira and Bent Bladi.
