Yasmin Levy

Monday, February 28, 2011 at 8 pm, Kenan Auditorium
Co-presented with UNCW Hillel

Israeli singer Yasmin Levy is of a new generation of musicians who are preserving and re-defining the most beautiful songs from Ladino/Juedeo-Spanish heritage and mixing it with Andalusian Flamneco and Middle Eastern influences. Hers is a deep, spiritual and moving style of singing and we are proud to be part of her U.S. tour for the coming season. Levy will be joined by an exceptional group of musicians including Yechiel Hasson, guitar; Vardan Hovanissian, flute, duduk, ney, clarinet; Miles Danso, electric double bass; and Ishay Amir, percussion.

Here surely is the next world music superstar. -London's Guardian
