Israeli-born to parents of Moroccan and Persian ancestry Mor Karbasi’s haunting voice and stunning stage presence bring new life to songs performed in ancient languages. She performs predominately Sephardic Jewish repertoire in the Judeo-Spanish language Ladino, alongside Hebrew and Spanish. There are also unmistakable influences of both flamenco and fado. Her debut album ‘Beauty and the Sea’ and new album ‘Daughter of the Spring’ released in summer 2011 received rave reviews and established her position at the forefront of world music divas. Performing with Andres Ticino (percussion), Davide Mantovani (bass) and Joe Taylor (Spanish and electric guitars), Mor Karbasi brings a passionate, contemporary flair to the songs of her heritage. “This album establishes the London-based Israeli singer Mor Karbasi as one of the great young divas of the global music scene… Her voice is remarkable, mixing delicacy, power and control… This is surely one of the albums of the year!” Robin Denselow, The Guardian
