Israeli ladino/flamenco singer Yasmin Levy launches her upcoming North American tour at the Théâtre Outremont.
Daughter of Yitzhak Levy, the brilliant composer, cantor and musicologist who spent his life recording and preserving the Ladino/Sephardic song tradition that was passed down orally for nearly 500 years, Yasmin Levy has emerged in her own singular and unique way with the music. Revisiting her father’s research, she imbues her approach to the disappearing language with flourishes of flamenco, some jazz and Middle Eastern accents, writing original compositions and adapting others in a modern, appealing fashion, making her work undeniably contemporary and particularly human. Intense, spiritual, inspiring, the artist and her songs are an ode to solidarity, a call to fraternal reconciliation.
Théâtre Outremont, 1248 Bernard West
