Dr. Judith Cohen is an ethnomusicologist and singer specializing in Sephardic music and music among the Crypto-Jews of Rural Portugal. She is the Spain Consultant for the Alan Lomax Recordings, and also works with medieval music, pan-European balladry, Balkan music and Spanish, Portugese, Yiddish, and French-Canadian traditions. She teaches at York University in Toronto. Recently, she was invited to Morroco to give workshops and concerts returning old Morrocan Sephardic songs to a small town whose longtime Jewish presence is now only a memory.
