Zahava Ben, Mizrahi Crossover

"In the complex tangle of Sephardi-Ashkenazi relationships, Zehava Ben comes off as something of a unique figure," writes Shai Tsur in the Jerusalem Post.

Her recent work spans the "classical" Israel pop of the '50s and Arabic-language singing -- a unique blend at a time when other Sephardi singers are complaining of discrimination, writes Tsur.
