Looking forward to our special re-release of East and West featuring the Ljuba Davis Ladino Ensemble. We will celebrate Ljuba's 70th Birthday this November.
Until then, you can find Ljuba as the cantor at Martha's Vineyard Hebrew Center.
“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)
