Format: Audio CD
Hakki Obadia is one of the few representatives of the noble and ancient Iraqi-Jewish musical tradition. Having emigrated to the US in his youth, he became the New York Sefardic community's most sought-after Middle Eastern Jewish singer / instrumentalist of the previous generation. This CD ranges from religious and spiritual melodies and chants to love songs, and features several instruments and local styles. The recording qualities are not quite up to contemporary standards, which is why I rated it with four stars. However, the music is excellent and should be of interest to anyone who appreciates great ethnic and folk music, especially with a spiritual bent.

There is lots of Iraqi Jewish Music out there keep looking.
This is not great.
No disrespect to the performers but there are much better to be had.
A document but not entertaining.

Before Zionist settler colonialism sharped antagonisms and the Arab ruling class reacted with a deadly and reactionary antisemitism, communities of Jewish religion or descent contributed an important part of the culture and life of the countries of Arab east. Nowhere was this more pronounced than in music, particularly in Iraqi. Until the Hashemite (same family of thugs and theives that currently oppresses the people of Jordon) government Washington and London imposed on Iraq expelled Iraqi Jews, almost all Iraqi traditional musicians were Jews. In the 1930s the delegations Iraq sent to world music festivals were entirely composed of Jews.

This musician like many others continues tradition of beautiful and wonderful Arab music which continues in the Iraqi jewish diaspora around the world, but particularly in Israel.

Listen to this and take in the freedom of motion, as well as the classic twining around traditional rhythems and scales that makes this music unique. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
