Product Description

Product Description

Sentir is the fifth album from Israeli singer Yasmin Levy. Born in Jerusalem, Yasmin Levy was introduced to Ladino singing and culture from a very young age. Her father was the leading figure in the world of research into and preservation of the Judeo-Spanish culture, dating back to the 15th century in Spain. Today, it remains one of the most moving and romantic musical traditions of all times. In her deep, spiritual and moving style of singing, Yasmin preserves and revives the most beautiful songs from the Ladino/Judeo-Spanish heritage, mixing it with Andalucian Flamenco.

Review

Her magical new album, Sentir, is her most mesmerising accomplishment so far, and will surely find a place on many a record of the year list in the coming months. --Sunday Times

Each of her albums has its unique character. This new one is her most interesting yet, benefiting from a wide range of influences brought in through her accompanying ensemble. --Scotsman

Levy is a true artist, a rare talent and there are many moments here where this shines through. --Froots

While listening to Radio 4 my interest was taken by the classical/gypsy backing on Hallelujah and I was inspired to the buy cd. I was pleasantly surprised to find that all other tracks lived up & surpassed the Hallelujah track. She has a beautiful voice

The above line from Leonard Cohen's much-recorded song Hallelujah are appropriate for this passionate singer and her emotionally literate album, steeped in not only her native Turkish music, along with her Jewish background, but with a very strong Latin influence too.
Hallelujah is here given a thankfully radical arrangement that I'm quite sure its composer would applaud - a far cry from the somewhat by-numbers versions of Rufus Wainwright, k.d. lang and others. She doesn't stray from the original tune that much, but enough to make this version of such a now iconic song worth hearing yet again.
The rest of this utterly beautiful album is made special by its complementary instrumental arrrangements, its colourful sound world, but most of all the astonishing voice of Yasmin herself. I love singers unafraid of passion (rather than mere caterwauling) and she has it in spades. Listen to the slow, piano-backed La Hija De Juan Simon, and try to remain unmoved. She manages to incorporate the flamboyant intensity of flamenco with a more obviously middle-eastern sensibility, to startling effect.
A great singer and a wonderful set of songs.

This is one of those albums you want to tell the world about.

Each of Yasmin's cd's is a journey through heartfelt emotion and passion. Having travelled from Ireland to London to see her perform during her "Mano Suave" tour the experience was well worth the effort and i could not wait for the release of her next cd. Sentir does not disappoint in any way. While more jazzy and smooth than Mano Suave, La Juderia or Romance and Yasmin, it marks a maturity and security in Yasmin's establishment as a world class Ladino artist. She has explored vocally and musically the diverse beauty of Ladino's rich heritage and has presented in Sentir, an offering of song that captivates the heart and mind.
As you explore her music more, one finds a simplicity of expression yet truely professional approach in her endeavour to share a part of her heart and heritage with us.
In the midst of frequently rainy and misty Irish weather, Sentir has brought the warmth of the sun to my heart, it is a pleasure to listen to and Yasmin is an artist well worth investing in!

Four Quarters Ent. presents "SENTIR", Yasmin Levy previously worked with Jerry Boys, teamed up with Javier Limon co-producer of the tremendously successful Bebo & Cigala album "Lagrimas Negras". Levy helps blend flamenco with a folk genre that dates back to the Jews expulsion from Spain in 1492.

To be sure, Sentir draws a diversity of influences. Yasmin includes original contemporary material (by Limon, Levy and her brother Yuval), brings a Cuban jazz reimagining to the old ladino song "Mi Korason" and finds a fresh way to arrange Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

Yasmin honors her late father Yitzhak Levy, a cantor musicologist with an interpretation of the Ladino songbook, by singing a duet with him. This was accomplished by dubbing in his vocals from a decade-old recording of the song "Una Pastora". Yasmin states, "This is one of the most beautiful songs my father ever recorded. His Singing is something holy for me, and I was afraid to touch it .. until I realized that it was my own fears I needed to overcome."

I had never heard of Yasmin Levy until a recent radio interview with her, discussing her new album and exploring how feeling is expressed through music performance. A blend of Jewish, Spanish (Ladino) and Arabian sounds, for me the music resonates with very deep streams of feeling. At times I found the expression somewhat over the top, but overall I really enjoyed this album.
