Israeli singer shares enticing sounds of Judeo-Spanish Ladino at Valentine’s Day concert
NORTH BETHESDA, MD – Hearts will be aflutter not only from bouquets of roses and
surprise gifts this Valentine’s Day, but also from the sensuous and seductive singing of Israel’s Yasmin Levy, fusing the Judeo-Spanish language of Ladino with flamenco influences on Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. in the Music Center at Strathmore. Every bit as striking as her arresting vocals, the smoky-eyed Levy delivers impassioned songs in a beguiling Sephardic sound, creating “an emotional impact you believe in” (The Sun, United Kingdom). She is joined by prodigious Turkish flautist Omar Faruk Tekbilek. All seats in the concert hall for this performance are $38. This concert is presented in association with the Washington DCJCC. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (301) 581-5100 or visit Levy’s musical style is greatly influenced by her father, Isaac Levy, a composer and pioneer researcher into the history of Ladino music and Judeo-Spanish culture. Ladino is a Romance language derived from Old Spanish, influenced heavily by Hebrew and Aramaic, as well as Arabic, Turkish and Greek. Levy reinterprets medieval Ladino song by incorporating modern influences such as Andalusian Flamenco, Mediterranean and Persian into her music, which expresses longing, heartache, fiery passion and intense desire. Levy has been heralded as “one of the finest singers in the Middle East, she deserves global recognition” (The Guardian, United Kingdom) and as “emerging as a major figure on the world music scene” (Telegraph, United Kingdom). Her most recent album, Sentir, was released in 2010 to great critical acclaim from such outlets as The New York Times, USA Today and The Boston Globe. Born in Adana, Turkey, Omar Faruk Tekbilek is a foremost exponent for the country’s aural style, and is known for his performances with the ney, a bamboo flute, in a Sufi style. He has mastered a variety of old-world instruments, including the ney, zurna (double-reed oboe like instrument with buzzing tone), the baglama (long-necked lute) and the oud (the classic lute). His music was permanently altered upon meeting the Mevlevi Dervishes, the ancient Sufi order of Turkey, who profoundly influence Tekbilek with their mysticism and fusion of sound and spirit. Tekbilek has relayed this distinctive sound through numerous solo albums, and has also collaborated with guitarison three albums, Suleyman the Magnificent, Firedance and Beyond the Sky, and also workeon Fata Morgana.
