As to Yemeni Jews, there seems to be only a small remnant of them left, most having been flown to Israel in "Operation Flying Carpet".
I thought the Yemeni musical influences were merging with European-style Israeli music — that is certainly what was happening in the late 50s. I know things change, but it is shocking to see how much this world has changed.

Jack has our old LPs in the basement; maybe I can persuade him to look for the folk music from way back when. It would be interesting to hear it again, and I am sure we can find a way to digitize it. (But no promises. At least I can find out if we still have those albums.)
