“A must see show! With a ship’s horn power voice & flamenco drama, the irresistible songs of singer-songwriter Vazana give the endangered language Ladino new life”
 –Volkskrant, NL

Nani Vazana is one of the only artists in the world that write & compose new songs in the endangered Ladino language. In her new album ‘Ke Haber’ (What’s New) she captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language and culture, passed down from her Portuguese-Moroccan grandmother, and propels it into the 21st century with socially pertinent lyrics, celebrating migration, gender and female empowerment.

Nani unveils a piece of history we don’t easily find in other mythology & anthropology. 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’s music was documented for the Library of Congress USA in 2023, in an honour reserved to few artists, naming her new Ladino repertoire as a “living relic”. 

Nani ranked #11 World Music Charts and #13 Music Charts Europe, represented the Netherlands at the EU Music Festival in Vietnam and performed at the Kennedy Center USA, BBC Radio 3, the London Jazz Festival UK and the Jodhpur RIFF festival India. Nani showcased at APAP USA, Jazzahead DE and Injazz NL. She held talks at TEDx Amsterdam NL & hosted 3 WOMEX network sessions.

The Dutch NPO network released a mini documentary about Nani’s musical work and she also composed music for BBC4 and NPO documentaries. Nani is the artistic director of AccelerateHer Showcase Festival, professor at the London Performing Academy of Music and the Jerusalem Music Academy, she chairs the Amsterdam Artist Collective and founded Why DIY Music and Nova Productions.
