Spring and Summer 2018

Hello from the Ljuba Davis Ladino Ensemble!
 
Congratulations to our percussionist Ossama Farouk for his role in the smash Broadway hit, "The Band's Visit".  The musical swept the 2018 TONY awards with 10 wins including Best Musical.   Amazing.
 



Two songs from our instrumental CD have been featured in a new documentary!
"There are Jews Here" - This quirky and poignant documentary examines the challenges of Jewish life in small-town America. Focusing on four tiny Jewish communities, the directors examine what happens to a congregation when there are scarcely enough Jews left to form a quorum for religious activities.

 


“One of the elements that I love is that it’s unusual for people to hear Ladino,” said Davis. “I love it all — the music, the liturgy, the language. It’s in my pores.” (JTA)

"The ensemble’s diversity reflects the nature of the Ladino language, which originated in Spain before the Inquisition and was spoken throughout Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, North Africa and beyond." (JTA)

 

"Sephardic folk music never sounded better than this collection of Ladino tunes in vocal AND instrumental versions by Ljuba Davis and her supporting team."  (JAZZ WEEKLY)
