The Israeli band Baladino offers fresh, authentic interpretations of unique Mediterranean music and tradition rooted in Ladino culture, singing in a Spanish-Jewish dialect spoken by Sephardic Jews. Singer Yael Badah. Badah’s collection of Ladino songs, many of which belonged to her ancestors, form the core of Baladino’s repertoire. Tradition is a departure point for the musicians, who often improvise Mediterranean-Gypsy grooves that embrace more modern influences.
