All songs in Yasmin’s début album ‘Romance & Yasmin’ are traditional Ladino 
Taken from the Judeo – Espanol Romances books of Yitzhak Levy
(Yasmin’s father who died when she was only one year old).
Yitzhak 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.
Growing up in such an environment it was only natural for Yasmin to follow her fathers footsteps and become an ambassador of Ladino, not just by singing but also through her voice and spiritual awareness, she displays an extraordinary ability to express the emotions embodied in this culture and from the way she sings you can tell Yasmin Levy has, in her hearts of hearts, visited the landscapes she so vividly paints for our enjoyment.
This début album ‘Romance & Yasmin’ (Connecting Cultures) signaled the strength of her talent and a nomination in the BBC World Music Awards recognized the same.
Today, the Ladino remains one of the most moving and romantic musical traditions of all times.
