Discovering Mor Karbasi

Thanks to a glowing review of her debut album in today's Guardian, I've just discovered the music of London-based Israeli-born singer Mor Karbasi. If you like Yasmin Levy, I guarantee you'll love Karbasi, who also mixes Ladino, Flamenco and Arabic influences, but whose voice is somewhat 'lighter' and her songs perhaps slightly more accessible on a first listen than Levy's.

You can hear four tracks by Mor Karbasi here, and here's a video of the singer at the 2006 Simcha on the Square in Trafalgar Square:

I don't understand a word she is saying, but that doesn't matter. She has a beautiful voice.
