In celebration of the 5th Annual International Ladino Day, the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies is proud to present a concert with Sephardic singer Yasmin Levy, to be held at the Stroum Jewish Community Center in Seattle in conjunction with Town Hall Seattle.
 
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.
 
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with Prof. Devin Naar, the Chair of the Stroum Center’s Sephardic Studies Program, along with Jon Kertzer, co-curator of Town Hall Seattle’s Global Rhythms concert series.
 
Please note that tickets to this event will be sold by Stroum Jewish Community Center (SJCC) and are available online here.
 
Contact SJCC’s box office at BoxOffice@SJCC.org or 206.388.0833 for more details.
 
This event is sponsored by the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies, the Sephardic Studies Program, the Stroum Jewish Community Center, and Town Hall Seattle. It is made possible by the Lucie Benveniste Kavesh Endowed Fund for Sephardic Studies.
