Yasmin Levyís new show and album Libertad encompass a new musical journey drawing on the influences of both Spanish and Turkish music, which have been the hallmark of her Ladino repertoire, and which now take her in a new direction.



For this new project, she has taken the passion of the flamenco world she so cherishes, and complements that with the emotional tones from the musical world of her Turkish ancestors. Her new landscape is a fusion of flamenco guitar, embellished with the rich sound of Turkish strings, and a small hint of Cuban and other piano stylings. More than anything else, this show will be all about Yasmin Levy and her own music; the singer and increasingly confident song-writer (she has written seven of the twelve songs on the album), and her special mix of musical influences that will create an emotionally-driven, entertaining evening.

'Levyís biggest asset is her voice, which is versatile, sensuous, and brimming with emotion' The Independent

'The next world music superstar' Guardian
