Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Nani Vazana is one of the few artists in the world that composes new songs in the endangered Ladino language.
In her 4th album, "Ke Haber" ("What's New"), she captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language & culture. She propels it into the 21st century with socially pertinent lyrics, celebrating migration, gender and female empowerment with her trio - the fiery sound of Spanish guitars blends seamlessly with her powerful vast vocals & her lyrical trombone and piano playing.
De Volkskrant named it: "A Must-See Show"! Recent performing highlights include London Jazz Festival, Kennedy Centre in Washington, Jodhpur RIFF Festival, Montana Folk Festival, Richmond Folk Festival, and Jerusalem Jazz Festival. This year she will be headlining the North Carolina Folk Festival.
