Tickets £21.50
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm

Nani is world’s 1st Ladino songwriter. Her new album ‘Ke Haber’ (What’s New) captures the spirit of the ancient, matriarchal language & propels it into the future w/ socially pertinent lyrics celebrating migration, gender & female empowerment.

The soundscape captures the sounds & smells of the marketplace and fuses them with raw, flamenco like vocals, soft choral trombone, mariachi guitar & percussion & piano.

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, Jazz in the Park fest Romania and the Jodhpur RIFF festival India.

Nani held talks at TEDx Amsterdam NL, WOMEX, Hangveto, JAZZIAM, Colours of Ostrava, Music Finland, AtojazZ, Norsk Jazz Forum, InJazz, Fira B! and more.
