New Music CD

One of my favorite Hazzans is Isaac Azose, Hazzan Emeritus of the Ezra Bessaroth Congregation in Seattle, Washgington. He has recorded a new CD of Sephardic Romansas and folksongs titled “Ladino Reflections”.

Two discs, with a total of 34 songs, including:  Pasharo D’ermozura, Durme Durme, Morenika, La Vida Do Por El Raki…a virtual hit parade of Sephardic favorites!!!    ( I know…you’re beginning to hum each song as you read the titles!!)   I’ve order a few copies…..perhaps you will, too!!!

Order today from his website:


Tomorrow, we begin cooking at STTI for the Sepahrdic Food Festival next Sunday.  Looking forward to posting recipes and step-by-step guides from our master chefs!!!!
