"That magical mix of memory, nostalgia, tender beauty and hope, to perfection." -BBC Radio
In her deeply moving voice, Yasmin Levy sings Ladino songs: the 500-year-old Sephardic or Spanish-Jewry songs that have been passed down orally from generation to generation. The Israeli singer was introduced to Ladino songs at an early age by her late father, Isaac Levy-who is credited with having single-handedly saved this magical musical tradition from extinction. Ladino songs are emotionally penetrating and spiritually uplifting. Part of the miniseries "Faces of Latina Performers." $39, $35; CMA members $38, $34
