It was International Cats Day this week and yes, there is Sephardic inspired content to connect to the occasion. Check out the film THE RABBI’S CAT (Le Chat du Rabbin), a 2011 French animated film directed by Joann Sfar and Antoine Delesvaux, based on volumes one, two and five of Sfar's comics series with the same title. It tells the story of a cat, who obtains the ability to speak after swallowing a parrot, and its owner who is a rabbi in 1920s North Africa.
Catching up with Syria’s first internationally recognized opera singer Lubana al Quntar whose voice is both sunlight and dew in the Arabic language, mashala. She is not only the family of Farid AlAtrash and Asmahan but part of the family of talented artists that are beloved to SHIN DC. Afraim and Miriam had a lovely afternoon with Lubana at @turkishcoffeelady
