La Casbah is a unique music ensemble based in Israel whose members share a deep connection to North African music from Algeria and Morocco. As descendants of Jewish immigrants from Algeria and Morocco, they share the goals of preserving and reinterpreting the different musical textures of the area and painting them with their own musical language, combining both traditional and modern sounds.
