Album Notes
"Kaminos" is an album of traditional music of the Sephardim, the Jews of Spain, who were sent into exile in 1492 by the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella. The language of the Sephardic people is called Ladino, which is old Spanish with a mix of words from the languages they learned in their new countries; Ladino also often incorporates Hebrew words and phrases. The music on this recording comes from the Balkans, Turkey, Greece, and North Africa, all places were the Jews of Spain flourished during the centuries leading up to the outbreak of World War II. Many Sephardic communities were destroyed by the Nazis and their allies in the Holocaust.

Like traditional music everywhere, the songs tell of the joys and sorrows of everyday life, of love and loss, of holidays and histories. Accompanied on this recording by bowed strings, plucked strings, and percussion, the melodies and rhythms are lively, lovely, and quirky. The members of Trio Sefardi have worked for many years with Flory Jagoda, a Bosnian-born singer and composer, and a survivor of the Holocaust, whose songs have continued and expanded the repertoire of Sephardic songs and whose songs keep alive the memories of her family and community from Bosnia, a community that is no more.

John Gardiner

Joy and Sorrow of a Diaspora recaptured
With instrumental virtuosity and vocal brilliance this album will wake your soul to a folk music tradition that
these performers might keep alive by dint of their talents alone. I heard this group perform at a small venue in
Berryville ,Virginia recently. Their performance brought the packed house to its feet, for encore, In between songs
Howard Bass, Tina Chancey and Susan Gaeta, kept the crowd rapt with historical background and annecdotal description
of what was to come next in a memorable evening, that delighted and enlightened thei country audience.
