The Haunting Smoldering Sounds of Andalusia
In her haunting, deeply spiritual and passionate style of singing, Yasmin Levy preserves and revives the most beautiful, romantic songs of her Ladino/Judeo-Spanish heritage and fuses them with the distinctive, smoldering sounds of Andalusia. Yasmin uniquely blends old and new – traditional Sephardic Jewish ballads with new flamenco – and evokes the emotional rhythms and style of ancient Spain and the Middle East.
A Q&A with Prof. Devin Naar, Chair UW Sephardic Studies, and Jon Kertzer (co-curator of Town Hall Seattle’s Global Rhythms) will follow the performance. The event is a program of the 2017 UW International Ladino Day.
