Smadar Levi is an exciting new voice emerging from the New York City 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. In addition to her own project, Smadar has lent her vocals to a number of recordings. The internationally-renowned nonprofit organization Seeds of Peace honored Smadar with an award for "uniting cultures to achieve peace through music."
