Axivil are a Spanish early music group founded 1997, and directed by Felipe Sánchez Mascuñano.[1][2] The ensemble takes its name from the Jewish vihuela de péñola player Juceff Axivil (fl. 1352),[3] the surname Axivil being an Arabized version of Sevillano, hence "Joseph of Seville," although in fact from Borja.[4][5]
