There's far more to Jewish music than the sounds of the Eastern European shtetl. Jenni Frazer heads east.

Turn to the east and listen to the sounds of the Sephardim. This year's Jewish Arts Festival has some particularly choice examples of Sephardi music, including songs of passion and tragedy as celebrated by the Spanish-Jewish group, Los Desterrados.
