Isaac Levy was born in Turkey in 1919, was a leading figure in the world of research and preservation of the Judeo – Spanish culture.
Its language, Ladino was a form of 15th-century Spanish later embellished with Hebrew and other languages as the Jews of Spain spread out to other Mediterranean countries.
Isaac worked as both a composer and cantor. After the creation of the State of Israel, he was appointed head of the Ladino department at Israel’s national radio station (“Kol Israel”). His life’s work was devoted to the collection and preservation of the songs of Sephardic Jews: these songs had been passed down orally from generation to generation over a period in excess of 500 years. During his lifetime he published 4 books containing Sephardic romances and another 10 volumes of liturgical songs.
He recorded many of these same songs for the national radio and this album
Isaac Levy – El Kante de una Vida (The Song of a Life) is the result.
