We had a great time in the world music expo ‘Babelmed’ in Marseilles, looking forward to the next shows, Ashdod Israel and Fez, Morocco

The next show is in Ashdod, Israel 17th April http://www.torhazahav.co.il

Sol La Tsadika, which is the title track on my latest album, was in fact a young Jewish girl from morocco, named Sol Hachuel.

Her tragic story serves as a reminder of the need for tolerance with our neighbors and the grave dangers of religious fanatacism.

In 1837, Sol was a beautiful girl aged 17.
She was brought to the Sultan’s judge, charged with rejecting Islam, after her friend and neighbor Tahra claimed she had converted.
She denied it, and was cruelly sentenced to exectution.

After the sultan’s son tried to persuade her to convert, and even after they wounded her, she still refused her option to a pardon, and was beheaded in the puclic square of Fez.The jewish commuinty was shocked, and buried her as a martyr. They called her “Sol ha-Tsadika” (The righteous Sol), and the Arabs called her Lalla Suleika (the holy lady Suleika). Her grave became a pigrimage site for both Jews and Muslims alike.
I am thrilled to be going to perform in the ‘sacred music festival’ in Fez on 17th and 18th June, and participate in ‘conference of the birds’ on 13th June. Find out more information on their website http://www.fesfestival.com/?lang=en – Its not only an honour to be invited, but to also see the places that i have drawn inspiration from.

Listen free to my own version of the story of Sol, from my last album:

Concert by Mor Karbasi programmed within the “Nights of music in the Jewish quarter”


The new disc by Mor Karbasi wants to create a bridge between her Moroccan and Jewish roots. The familiar Sephardic songs come from the Balkans (Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, etc.). She wanted to pay tribute to a darker side of the Sephardic musical tradition: the songs from the Morocco. Mor found a great treasure: unpublished songs from Sephardic melodies of Morocco. This was the origin of this project, to join melodies, rhythms and textures of the Arabian world with the multiple influences of Mor Karbasi.
