Nani Noam Vazana is one of the only artists in the world that writes and composes new songs in Ladino, the endangered language of the Sephardic Jews from North Africa and the Iberian peninsula. In her new album, “Ke Haber” (What’s New), she captures the spirit of the ancient language and culture and propels it into the 21st century with socially pertinent lyrics, celebrating migration, gender and female empowerment. The soundscape bridges over tradition and modern life, capturing the sounds and smells of the marketplace and fuses them with raw, flamenco like vocals and surprising instrumentations. She unveils a piece of history we don’t easily find in other mythology and anthropology.
Nani Noam Vazana has performed at the the Kennedy Center, BBC Radio 3, the London Jazz Festival and holds a post at the London Performing Academy of Music and the Jerusalem Music Academy.
