Some of the oldest recordings of Sephardic music (c.1906-1913), have
recently resurfaced at the EMI Archive in London. Recorded in a variety of
locations in the Ottoman Empire, they feature the voices of legendary
performers of the Judeo-Spanish song at the turn of the twentieth century.
After being digitized, the Jewish Music Research Centre is preparing a
scholarly edition of these recordings to make them available to the public
Edwin Seroussi is the Joyce Z. Greenberg Visiting Professor in Jewish
Studies at the University of Chicago for Winter/Spring 2016.
