Join Trio Sefardi to celebrate the release of their newest CD, La Yave d’Espanya (The Key from Spain). Susan Gaeta, Tina Chancey and Howard Bass will perform music from Turkey and the Balkans, old and new Sephardic favorites on the customary topics of love and courtship, holiday fun, and, in particular, life’s journeys. They’ll feature one of their mentor Flory Jagoda’s most important songs, Sviraj Harmoniku(Play Your Accordion), composed when teen-age Flory fled Zagreb in 1941 in the wake of the Nazi occupation; she brought this song to light more than 60 years later, and this is its premier recording. The title song relates the story of how the Sephardim, exiled from Spain in 1492, took the keys from their homes and passed them through the generations, in hopes of someday returning.


Trio Sefardi (Susan Gaeta, vocals/guitar; Tina Chancey, bowed strings; Howard Bass, lute/guitar) is 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. The trio draws on experience in folk music and jazz (Susan), early music (Tina and Howard), and the influence of their mentor, the Bosnian-born Sephardic singer/composer Flory Jagoda, a 2002 National Heritage Fellowship honoree. Washington Post chief music critic Ann Midgette praised the group’s “lovely and luminous performance of Sephardic songs” in a review of a performance with the Post Classical Ensemble at the Kennedy Center. 

The trio has performed twice on the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center, at the Center for Jewish History and the Greek Jewish Festival in New York City, at the National Gallery of Art, annually at the Washington Folk Festival, and at Lisner Auditorium as a featured group in the Washington Revels production, “Andalusian Treasures.” Spring 2019 performances include an appearance at the prestigious Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, S.C., and a premiere of their new program, “La Nona Kanta: The Remarkable Life of Flory Jagoda,” a collaboration with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Hartford, Connecticut. This evening will feature songs from their recently released third recording, “La Yave d’Espanya” and other Sephardic favorites.
