New Album: Musical Tribute to Lost Sephardic Community of Monastir New Album, Monastir, Out Now!

The Monastir Project is a diplomatic and musical initiative to record memories of the Balkan Sephardic community of Monastir (known today as Bitola, North Macedonia). 98% of the city's Jewish population was wiped out in WWII, and this album works to bring back to life the music of that beloved community. The album includes 30+ musicians from Macedonia, Israel, Spain, Germany and the USA who came together, across borders and religions, to create this beautiful tribute - now available worldwide on all music platforms.

To learn more about the curation of the songs included in this album (each one has a specific story unique to the Jewish history of Monastir), you can listen and read all about it here:
