Trio Sefardi celebrates the musical heritage of
the exiled Jews of Spain, the Sephardim, with songs in Ladino from Turkey, Greece, North Africa, and the former Yugoslavia about love and courtship, holidays and hope. Trio members Susan Gaeta (vocals/guitar), Tina Chancey (viola da gamba, Renaissance violin, Pontic lyra, rebec), and Howard Bass (guitar/lute) are dedicated to bringing the vibrant past into the living present and to continuing the musical traditions of those who created and sustained Sephardic song traditions over the centuries. They have performed extensively with their mentor, the Bosnian-born singer/composer and 2002 National Heritage Fellowship honoree Flory Jagoda, and with La Rondinella and the Western Wind.
Trio Sefardi has performed at the Kennedy Center, the National Gallery of Art, Piccolo Spoleto, the Center for Jewish History and the Greek Jewish Festival in New York City, at the Richmond and Washington Folk Festivals, and at many synagogues and Jewish Community Centers on the East Coast. The group recently released its third recording, “La Yave d’Espanya.”
