Mizrahi/Sephardic Jews sing a traditional middle eastern/north African Shabbat song

To clarify: it is actually (as the title implies) a medley of various Shabbat songs, both traditional and modern, “remixed” in a contemporary pop style by the Revivo Project (Raviv Ben Menahem, Nir ben Menahem, and Eliran Tzur), who are Yemenite-Israeli. The songs are:

1. Lekha Dodi (Shlomo Alqabetz, 16th century Safed)

2. ‘Oneg Shabbat (Avihu Medina, 20th century Jerusalem)

3. ‘Azreni El Hai (Rafael ‘Antebi, 19th century Aleppo)

4. Shabbat Matana (Avihu Medina, 20th century Jerusalem)

5. Shalom leBen Dodi (Shlomo ibn Gvirol, 11th century Spain)

6. KsheYavo haShishi (Tzion Shar’abi, 20th century Jerusalem)

7. Ki Eshmera Shabbat (Abraham ibn Ezra, 12th century Spain)
