Glimmer of Light

A glimmer of light – A tribute to Jewish composers

To start the New Year on a musical note, the talented Sephardi Cantor Daniel Benlolo invites us to rediscover some of the Jewish singers and composers who always inspired him. Surrounded by his musician friends, he’ll interpret tunes that are familiar to everyone.
