Since 2004, the European Institute for Jewish Music is depositary of the archives of the composer Alberto Hemsi (1898-1975). Given in July 2004 by Myriam Capelutto Hemsi (1912-2005), widow of the composer, this holding include rare documents (manuscripts of the composer, photographies, magnetic tapes and discs…) which form today one of the richest archive holding of Judeo-Spanish music in the world.

The release of the complete Coplas Sefardies by the Europäische Zentrum für Jüdische Musik (EZJM) in Hanover and the music label Rondeau Production mark the first step of a French-German collaboration and the beginning of the creation of a european network of Jewish music centers, based on the exchange of information, the valorisation of the physical and digital contents, and the organisation of conferences and concerts at a european scale.
