Yasmin Levy

March 16, 2011 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$20

Yasmin Levy is a singer born in Jerusalem, Israel who has taken Ladino music in new directions and to new heights on the international stage. She is the daughter of the late Yitzhak Levy one of the world’s leading scholars in Ladino music who spent his entire career collecting and preserving the Sephardic music that was passed down orally from generation to generation for over 500 years. Although her father passed away when she was only one year old, the traditions passed from her father to her mother and then to the young Yasmin are a testament to the survival of this endangered art.

“Her powerfully sensual voice, which combines flamenco’s fiery passion with the microtonal melisma of Middle Eastern music, ripples across sashaying grooves built from hand percussion, Turkish-Arabic instruments like oud, ney and qanun, and Western standbys like acoustic guitar and piano.”
