A very rare recording by Zaki and Leila Murad
Very rare recording of Zaki Murad, a Hazan (cantor) and his famous singer/actress daughter Leila Murad singing El-Nora Halila, the Sephardi piyyut which opens the concluding service of Yom Kippur.
Leila Murad ended her days in Egypt as a recluse, having converted to Islam. I wonder what her father Zaki would have made of that.
Wishing all readers observing the Day of Atonement Gmar Hatima Tova.
