Noam “Nani” Vazana is one of the few artists in the world who writes and compose new songs in the endangered Ladino language (Judero-Español). In her new album ‘Ke Haber’ (What’s New) she captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language and culture and propels it into the 21st century with socially pertinent lyrics, celebrating migration, gender and female empowerment.

The soundscape bridges over tradition and modern life, capturing the sounds and smells of the marketplace and fuses them with raw, flamenco like vocals and surprising instrumentations. Soft choral-like trombones embellish mariachi guitars & percussion with glimpses of piano & cello tracks, make this record a magical realistic mosaic. Nani unveils a piece of history we don’t easily find in other mythology and anthropology.

Nani ranked #11 on the RMR chart and #13 on the WMCE chart, represented the Netherlands at the EU Music Festival in Vietnam and performed at the Kennedy Center USA, BBC Radio 3, London Jazz Festival UK and Jodhpur RIFF festival India. Nani has showcased at Folk Alliance, NAMM, APAP, Jazzahead, and Injazz.

Nani is a professor at the London Performing Academy of Music & the Jerusalem Music Academy.
