Yasmin Levy

 

”Take advantage of the opportunity to hear her now, before she
becomes idolized in the manner of Cesaria Evora and other great artists whose voices seem to sing directly from their soul.”
—San Francisco Examiner

With a deeply spiritual and moving style, Yasmin Levy preserves and revives the most beautiful and romantic songs from the Ladino/Judeo-Spanish tradition. 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 such as the oud, ney and qanun; and Western standbys, including acoustic guitar and bass.
