Ojos De Novia


Mor Karbasi releases her first album since 2013 with special guests Richard Bona, Kai Eckhardt and The Tomatito Family.

'Ojos De Novia' (Eyes of the Bride) is a thirteen track album of all new songs with a strong Berber influence. Mor's Moroccan, Persian and Moorish descent come to the fore in a set of songs about love and tragedy, set in her rich Sephardi family background.

Universal recording star Richard Bona brings a remarkable performance to "Haykem Juar" while long time collaborator Kai Eckhardt, a previous Mclaughlin Trio stalwart, lends his distinctive sound to both "Idijen" and title + video track "Ojos De Novia". The Tomatito family jointly contribute a deep flamenco feeling to Susona with an amazing solo from Jose Israel Torres.

Mor's voice is of course centre stage, once more bringing the qualities that Robin Denselow (The Guardian) called " remarkable -mixing delicacy, power and control as she moves between rousing, harsh-edged songs and the spine-tingling subtlety of a quieter piece".

But now, we find a more mature Karbasi, recalling her thrilling debut 'The Beauty and the Sea'. Alongside her multi instrumentalist and arranger wunderkind partner Joe Taylor, who brings guitar, trumpet, sax and toy piano to embellish the performances of songs that hail from her roots in Morocco, Spain and Persia with the continuing involvement of Shoshana Karbasi's lyrical skills.

Karbasi has strong recognition on the Touring circuit with previous appearances in UK at South Bank, St Lukes/Barbican, Salisbury Cathedral, in France at Café De Danse, Lyon Opera House and many International Festivals like WOMAD, Chicago WMF and FMM Sines.
