Ladino Music: Romansas, folksongs CD

"Ladino Reflections" is a double CD set of Ladino romansas and folksongs, released by Hazzan Isaac Azose of Seattle.

Tracing the Tribe met Hazzan Ike in Seattle when visiting our Jassen family. He is a beloved friend of our family and of the Sephardic community.

For some 40 years, he has dedicated himself to the preservation of Mediterranean Sephardic traditions. Although he retired as the hazzan of the Sephardic Congregation Ezra Bessaroth, he wrote me that he's busier than ever with many projects on his desk. Think of the energizer bunny!

"Ladino Reflections" has been 20 years in dreaming and six months in production.
