Soulful Intimacy

A concert by Yasmin Levy
lingers in MALCOLM MILLER's memory

 

A crowning ovation at the end of a capacity-filled Cadogan Hall concert on 24 February 2010 attested to the unique mystique of Yasmin Levy, the beguiling Israeli singer whose vocal qualities have brought Sephardic and Ladino song to the cutting edge of world music. It was the climax of her eight UK concerts, part of an international tour to launch her latest CD. Aptly entitled Sentir (Adama Records -- World Village/Harmonia Mundi 450010), it builds on her earlier albums (such as Mano Suave), evolving away from folk purism to a pungent fusion of middle-eastern, Flamenco and Spanish/Latin-American flavours...
