Born in Jerusalem 27 years ago, Yasmin Levy was introduced to Ladino singing and culture from a very young age. Her father was the leading figure in the world of research into and preservation of the Judeo-Spanish culture, dating back to the 15th century in Spain. Today, it remains one of the most moving and romantic musical traditions of all times.
In her deep, spiritual and moving style of singing, Yasmin preserves and revives the most beautiful and romantic songs from the Ladino/ Judeo-Spanish heritage, mixing it with Andalusian Flamenco.
Her debut album “Romance & Yasmin” (Ladino) is now out in Europe.
Her new album “La Juderia” (Ladino meets Flamenco – in Spanish) will be released in April 2005.
In 2004 she performed in various international festivals and events including WOMAD Singapore, Forum Barcelona, Bath Festival and the BBC’s New Year’s Day concert in London.
This year Yasmin has already been nominated for the BBC World Music Awards 2005. She will be touring the UK, Europe and the USA, including appearances at Womad festivals in the UK and Spain, and will close the year with her debut performance at New York’s Carnegie Hall in December.
