Zohara El Fassiya

Guest DJ Samuel Thomas introduces us to the wide world of Sephardic Jewish music. Thomas is a scholar of Sephardic traditions and leader of the group Asefa.

Samuel is involved with two events in the sixth annual NY Sephardic Music Festival (which coincides with Hanukkah, December 1-8, 2010): Asefa performs at the Edmond J. Safra Synagogue, 11 East 63rd St. on Sunday evening December 5; and Thomas moderates a Sephardic music seminar (with music by Vanessa Paloma and the d'Safi Takht Ensemble) at the Center for Jewish History, 15 W 16th St. on Monday evening December 6.

Is this by any chance a a sister festival of the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto?
  Sat. 12/4/10 8:15pm Your DJ:

Actually the NY Sephardic Festival isn't related to the Toronto Ashkenazi festival, no. Although it wouldn't be a bad idea for them to hook up - I know the producer of the NY Sephardic Festival has plans to mount a version in LA and is looking for other places too.
