Album Notes
Moroccan born Aaron Bensoussan is part of a prominent rabbinic dynasty. His grandfather, Rabbi Haim David Bensoussan, was the chief Rabbi of Morocco while his great grandfather, Rabbi Avraham Bensoussan, was one of the most revered Rabbis to emerge from the city of Fez. According to the Encyclopedia Judaica, the Bensoussan family traces back to Rabbi Yehuda Bensoussan, a teacher of Maimonides.

Cantor Bensoussan studied the art of Sephardic liturgical music and piyutim from his father and master musicians in Morocco. He moved to New York at the age of 14 to study in Yeshiva. Yet his family’s rabbinic plans for him were changed the moment he was exposed to the beautiful art of Ashkenazic hazzanut. When he heard Yossele Rosenblatt for the first time he knew that he wanted to be a Hazzan. Still, the hauntingly beautiful Piyutim and Makamat (Modes) of his youth remained firmly etched in a special place in his heart and soul. Aaron has a unique ability to combine both Ashkenazic and Sephardic music to create his own unique and intoxicating soulful sound.

This new album is expression of Aaron's original melodies and an expression of his long love for the Ashkenzi and Sephardic styles of cantorial singing along with his love of intricately arranged and perfectly executed rock music.

He has toured extensively throughout the United States, Israel and Europe performing in synagogues, festivals, and concert halls including Carnegie Hall in New York City and the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv.
