ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Sefardim, the Jews of Spain, lived on the Iberian Peninsula for fifteen centuries. Expelled in 1492 by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the Sefardim settled in North Africa, the Middle East, France, Italy, and parts of northern Europe, but were welcomed most warmly in the Ottoman Empire. In exile the Sefardim maintained their language, Ladino, and their oral culture. Songs were passed down through the generations, usually by women, and new songs were composed about love, loss, daily life, holidays, and history.

Trio Sefardi brings together three performers who share a love of, and a wide-ranging experience with, Sefardic music. The songs on this recording celebrate the rich musical heritage of the Sefardim, drawing on the contributions to this tradition made by those who have sung, sustained, and recorded this repertoire.

The members of Trio Sefardi, Susan Gaeta (vocals, guitar), Tina Chancey (bowed strings, backup vocals), and Howard Bass (lute, guitar), have performed extensively with a wide variety of ensembles and soloists, including National Heritage awardee, Flory Jagoda, Western Wind, La Rondinella, HESPERUS, the Baltimore Consort, and the Folger Consort.
