Israeli-born singer Yasmin Levi performs Ladino music, the Judeo-Spanish language of the Sephardic Jewish communities driven from Spain in the Middle Ages. Her ancestral folk songs are infused with Andalusian flamenco, Argentine tango and Middle Eastern music.
Yasmin Levy's family inheritance is due partly to her father, Yitzhak Levy, a singer-songwriter, musicologist and composer in Judeo-Spanish. He was also responsible for the Ladino radio programs on Kol Yisrael (Voice of Israel). Born in Jerusalem in 1975, Levy grew up surrounded by musical diversity, listening to Jewish and Islamic music, Turkish versions of Moroccan songs, Greek singers, classical, jazz, chansons, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf, Julio Iglesias and Luciano Pavarotti.
Following in the footsteps of these singers and storyteller...s, Levy has been releasing albums since 2004. Her singing, sometimes melancholic, sometimes passionately melodramatic, is even more intense during live performances. Her 2005 song Me Voy won her the International Songwriting Competition, which cemented her World Music star status and led to many collaborations. She won the Anna Lindh award for her cross-cultural collaborations, including those with Spanish singer-pianist María Toledo, Greek singer Yiannis Kotsiras, Transglobal Underground's Egyptian-British diva Natacha Atlas, and the British electronic music collective known for composing The Matrix soundtrack, Juno Reactor.
