Born in Jerusalem, singer/songwriter Yasmin Levy has become one of world music's brightest stars, known for uniting aspects from Jewish and Ladino cultures to create a passionate, inventive musical sound that's distinctly her own. On Sentir, her fourth full-length album, Levy punctuates traditional Middle Eastern tropes with the romance of flamenco, and even performs a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" that's unlike any other version you've ever heard.
