The Sheba ensemble is an all-female music group committed to promoting Jewish music with a unique twist. Sheba’s music reflects a stunning intersection of musical influences: classically trained at the world’s leading music conservatories, its members incorporate elements of bossa nova, pop, and jazz in their arrangements, lending a world music flair to Jewish tradition. Both traditional and new music is featured, including original compositions written by members of Sheba, as well as prominent composers in Ladino, Hebrew, English, and Yiddish.
The result is their own unique sound in which the entire Jewish world, from antiquity to Europe to the middle east, finds expression and a special harmony.
Sheba has performed concerts in all over the U.S. and in France. Media appearances include a television segment on the Manhattan neighborhood network, Radio J France, and radio Centre-Ville Montreal. Their latest CD was reviewed in Hadassah magazine.
