5th Annual International Ladino Day: Yasmin Levy in Concert
Saturday, November 11, 2017, 8:00 pm PST - 9:30 pm PST
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.
