Trio Sefardi performs the music of the Sephardic Jews. But who were the Sephardic Jews?
The Sefardim, the Jews of Spain, lived on the Iberian Peninsula for fifteen centuries. Expelled in 1492 by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the Sefardim settled in North Africa, the Middle East, France, Italy, and parts of northern Europe, but were welcomed most warmly in the Ottoman Empire. In exile, the Sefardim maintained their language, Ladino, and their oral culture. Songs were passed down through the generations, usually by women, and new songs were composed about love, loss, daily life, holidays, and history.
Formed in 2010, Trio Sefardi’s members are Howard Bass (lute, guitar, bass), Tina Chancey (bowed string, percussion, vocals), and Susan Gaeta (solo vocals, guitar, and percussion).
