RELEASE DATE 8TH OCTOBER 2012

Libertad Yasmin Levy WORLD VILLAGE PRESENTS THE NEW ALBUM BY ONE OF THE FINEST ARTISTS IN THE WORLD MUSIC Now internationally recognised as the foremost interpreter of Ladino music, whilst unafraid to incorporate elements from other cultures and styles, Yasmin Levy here releases her most diverse work to date. Yasmin brings great drama to her work that echoes the fervour of Spanish Flamenco, Argentinian Tango and the Portuguese blues of Fado. On her imminent new release, ‘Libertad’ (Freedom), produced by Ben Mandelson, the striking addition of soaring Turkish strings adds an extra element of vibrancy and passion. To celebrate the release of ‘Libertad’ Yasmin will embark on a global tour commencing with a performance at London’s Barbican Centre on 7 November.

Label: World Village File Under: World music Catalogue No: 450023 Barcode: 3149026007925 Price: FULL Format: 1 CD Packaging: digipack World Music: ISRAEL

For the album Yasmin has written five of the twelve songs herself, including one, Olvidate de Mi, with guest vocals by BUIKA. The disc also includes cover versions of one of the pearls of Turkish music, Firuze, as well as a unique cover of the classic Persian song, Recuerdo (originally titled “Soghati”). Yasmin Levy’s Sephardic heritage traces its roots from Turkey back to Spain, and ’Libertad‘ encompasses a new musical journey for Yasmin drawing very heavily on the influences of both Spanish and Turkish music which have been the hallmark of her Ladino songs, taking them in an entirely new direction.

Label: NAÏVE File Under: Other Genres Catalogue No: NV827011 Barcode: 3298498270112 Price: FULL Format: 1 CD Packaging: digipack

Comprised of a mix of traditional classics (“Feelin' Good”), songs written by Nina Simone (“Real Real”), or for her (“To Be Young, Gifted and Black” by Weldon Irvine), the album represents a full spectrum of Nina Simone's work and life. From the pulsing of the traditional ballad “House Of The Rising Sun,” the velvety, soul filled vocals of “Feeling Good,” and a bluegrass duet with Sinead O'Connor in “Don’t Take All Night,” Meshell Ndegeocello gives a subtle spin to the tracks off Pour une Âme Souveraine.
