Mor Karbasi is a London-based Israeli singer and pianist, specialising in sephardic songs. Karbasi sings in ladino, Spanish, Hebrew, and - on rarer occasions - English. She is directly descended from both Moroccan and Persian Jews, and is a fan of flamenco, which provides a strong flavour throughout all her songs. Her early musical performances were with Pena Flamenca in Jerusalem, and her mother played Moroccan piyyutim (liturgical poems) and sang Andalucian Jewish ballads at their home. She continues to be a constant influence on her daughter.
