Israeli singer/songwriter Yasmin Levy is, quite literally, the last of a dying breed. A native Ladino speaker, Levy is an ancestor to a rare and important intersection between Spanish, Jewish and Arabic heritages that birthed the Ladino language, influenced by both Hebrew and Arabic. Unfortunately, the language is so infrequently spoken in this day and age that it is facing language extinction. Levy is in a unique role as one of Israel's most beloved pop singers, both as a symbol for the diversity of Jewish culture, and for the survival of the Ladino language. Levy often combines Spanish musical traditions such as Flamenco and Andalusian music alongside Persian sounds from North Africa, making her a truly international artist. Touring the world at large, Levy helps unite a diasporic community through music while also representing a more niche community that still deserves recognition.
