Israeli Musician Performs in Turkey

An award-winning Israeli singer and songwriter, who will perform concerts in İzmir and Istanbul, said she would perform in Palestine if she were invited.

Levy said there was a song with these lyrics on her new album, and she wished she could go to Palestine to sing it but regretted that politicians were making it difficult.

With her distinctive and emotive style, Levy brought a new interpretation to the medieval Ladino/Judeo-Spanish style by incorporating more "modern" sounds of Andalusian Flamenco and Persian, as well as combining instruments like the darbuka, oud, violin, cello, and piano.

Levy’s work earned her the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation Award for promoting cross-cultural dialogue between musicians from three cultures.

Levy will take the stage Wednesday night in İzmir's Ahmet Adnan Saygun Art Center and Thursday night in Istanbul's Türker İnanoğlu Maslak Show Center. Tickets are available at Biletix.
