Sefarad is an up and coming band that draws from both middle-eastern and alternative influence. Its founders are emerging as a talented and powerful young duo originating from the New York Metropolitan area. Julian Tawil, a singer/songwriter from Brooklyn raised on these seemingly dichotomous genres, has developed a unique musical form by combining the vibrant melody of classic middle-eastern styles with the raw energy of modern rock. Accompanied by percussionist David Bernstein, the band has been experimenting with this distinctive fusion over the past year and has since developed a chemistry that may raise Sefarad to a new level of popularity.
