Smadar Levi is an Israeli singer.

Levi was born in Sderot Israel to a family that had immigrated from Morocco and Tunisia.[1][2] She has dedicated her career to reviving and reinvigorating the spirit of Convivencia, coexistence between Jewish and Muslim cultures.[3] World Music calls Levi, "perhaps the most exciting voice in the burgeoning Mediterranean New York City world music scene." [4] Levi sings in Hebrew, Arabic, and Ladino. Her music has been described as “pan-Mediterranean music peppered with a gypsy sound.” [5]

Seeds of Peace has honored Levi for "uniting cultures to achieve peace through music."[6]
