An exciting new voice emerging from the NYC world music scene, Smadar is an Israeli-Moroccan singer whose craft is best described as pan-Mediterranean music peppered with a gypsy sound. Smadar sings original and creative renditions of traditional tunes in Hebrew, Arabic, and Ladino. The Epoch Times International recently dubbed Smadar”a euphonious and haunting voice” for peace and unity, while the internationally-renowned nonprofit organization Seeds of Peace honored her with an award for “uniting cultures to achieve peace through music.” Smadar’s current project consists of an all-star international band
whose aesthetically arresting sound reflects the rich cultural mosaic of the
Mediterranean world. www.smadarlevi.com
