From the 2000 edition of the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, New Sounds presents a concert recording of Moroccan-born Haim Louk (pictured), a rabbi, cantor and world-recognized singer who is especially known for taking Sephardi chants and the old Andalusian music sung in both Hebrew and Arabic. We also hear the Arabo-Andalusian Orchestra of Fez, performing piyyoutim - religious songs sung in both Hebrew and Arabic.
