Music For A Cold Morning

It has come to my attention that there are some people who do not know of Yasmin Levy.

Winter is  coming on and I have been listening to music from Al-Andalus.

Lots of people are familiar with Flamenco, and some are familiar with the Moorish tradition in Spanish music but fewer have encountered the Judaeo-Spanish Ladino tradition. Ladino is a language based in old Castilian, with elements of Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Turkish and even a touch of Greek, spoken by the Spanish Jews. This Musical tradition is as rich as any found in Spain.

So allow me to offer you a piece by Yasmin Levy one of the young musicians helping to keep this tradition alive and vital.
