Gaeta’s [voice is] compelling.” – Washington Post“Trio Sefardi’s beautiful harmonies and skilled accompaniment movingly translates the joy and soul of this music.” – Flory Jagoda (Bosnian-born, internationally renowned Sephardic singer/composer)“Not only did Trio Sefardi share music, history, and culture from the Sefardic world but they brought their own special Ruach and Koach, spirit and strength.” – Rabbi Michael Birnholz, Temple Beth Shalom, Florida
Trio Sefardi programs provide audiences with an opportunity to hear songs sung in Judeo-Espanyol (commonly known as Ladino) of love and loss, holidays and hope that have been passed down through the generations. Their music and stories will fill our hearts with joy, laughter, and longing. Bravo to these superb musicians and their celebration of life!
