Melting her cultural heritage with her powerful voice while singing songs about joy, longing and love Mor Kabasi is one of the most prominent Ladino artists in her generation. She’ll be performing at Zorlu PSM’s Main Stage on November 16th!
Mor karbasi was born and raised in Jerusalem to a mother of Moroccan origins and a father of Persian ancestry.
Mor Karbasi burst onto the global world music scene in 2008 with the release of her first album, and has continued to capture audiences internationally with her exceptional talent, a result of her stunning voice and her impressive stage presence. Mor’s first album ‘The Beauty and the Sea’ (produced by Grammy award-winning producer Matt Howe and by multi-instrumentalist Joe Taylor) received rave reviews. Her second album, ‘Daughter of the Spring,’ established her as an up and coming diva on the world music scene, and led to extensive touring in Italy, Great Britain, Israel, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Sweden, Holland and Morocco as well as the United States. Her third album ‘La Tsadika’ is a touching exploration of her Moroccan roots on her mother’s side. Her passionate interpretation of traditional Sephardic Moroccan melodies and melodies of her own creation, combined with the musical direction of Tom Cohen and such collaborations as Itamar Doari, Mark Eliyahu, Salvador Guitierrez and of course Joe Taylor, have resulted in a unique and heartfelt album, channeling both the emotions Mor seeks to convey as well as the history of the women whose stories she tells. The latest and 4th album of the singer is a tribute the musical tradition of North Africa, not only to the Jewish-Sephardic world of the Maghreb, but also of the Berber.
