This CD is an all Sephardic style album with all new material.
Yaakov Shwekey is less than one year removed from the release of his last album, Ad Bli Dai, but that didn’t stop him from releasing a brand new album. Yochi Briskman presents an all new CD from Yaakov Shwekey titled, Libi Bmizrach, My Heart is in the East.
What’s your thoughts on Shwekey’s tenth smashing album? What’s your favorite song?

i happen to love every song on this album, its much better than his previous nine albums,one of the reasons is because in this cd yaakov sings the whole time and there is no choir in itSeptember 6, 2010 7:50 pm at 7:50 pm #700968h2Member

sphardik music doesn’t call to me. i just don’t like the style. nothing to do with shwekey.October 17, 2010 1:58 am at 1:58 am #700982i love coffeParticipant
I LOVE SEPHARDI/MIZRACHI MUSIC!!!!
But,…this CD wasnt what i had expected. Maybe its just me but some songs dont sound sephardi at all. Sure, he might be pronouncing the words as a Israeli/Sephardi but the style of the music doesnt really sound SEPHARDIC to me.
I dont hate his CD. There are some songs like habibi, yaala, and the first song called libi b’mizrach i think that i really like.
I guess i had my hopes up a bit too high for some real sephardic music.
