Sephardic Music Festival
The New York Sephardic Music Festival seeks to increase interest in and awareness of the Sephardic culture, including Mizrahi, Yemenite and Ladino traditions, highlighting the diversity within the Sephardic branch of Jewish culture and history. The latest Sephardic musical talents in the U. S. will be showcased, working to reinvigorate the thriving Sephardic culture that exists and is waiting to be re-discovered. The goal is to give people the opportunity to learn and enjoy this rich, sensual tradition that has the power to make hips shake and souls soar.
Erez a.k.a. DJ Handler is the founder and director of Shemspeed, Modular Moods, an independent record label, and the Sephardic Music Festival. As a multicultural maestro, he spins a mix of Baile Funk and Afro Beat blended with 80's free style and hip hop, while incorporating Ashkenazic cantorial music and traditional Yemenite melodies.
With each word he spits in the tongue of ancient Babylon, Y-Love breathes new life into hip-hop, one beat at a time. At the 2006 Jewish Music Awards, Y-Love took home the award for "Best Hip Hop Artist." Through his unique style and music, Y-Love shows incredible talents in bringing races and religions together with the power of Hip Hop and his own personal positivity.
