Smadar Levi: Music of Old and New, North Africa to the Middle East
Smadar Levi is a a Moroccan-Israeli singer who grew up in Sderot. The theme of peace Peace plays a prominent role in her thinking and as a performer for Seeds of Peace, she understands the importance of communicating about it with future generations.  Smadar has taken the "peace talk" another step forward by setting her own brand of music to never-before-published poetry of 7th-18th century writers first translated by Princeton Professor Bernard Lewis.  These works written in medieval Islam-Arabic, Turkish, Persian, and Hebrew  provide a fascinating glimpse into a time when men sat in tents, discussing and solving the challenges of peace in their day. The concert features Smadar's new compositions along with traditional Sephardic and Mizrachi works. Two familiar faces join Smadar and her band on stageâÃ,€"Esta's Ori Beanstock (guitar, oud, dumbek) and Shlomo Desket (percussion).
