Ljuba Davis speaks of her ladino and sephardic musical influences with Sahil Sharma.
Some ballads, lullabies, and a few prayers in the Hebrew liturgy style. They reflect the dedication and respect for music that Ljuba Davis has . In her latest album – East and West , Ljuba has revived the Jewish mainstream music with a touch of Sephardic beauty.
She has performed at venues that were quite remarkable, to even small nightclubs. But little did she know, that when her grandfather said sing her heart out , she would adopt it as her mantra. The mantra has parallelled her journey in to music , as she dabbled with Jewish folk, Spanish, sephardic and ladino music. Her songs have a good deal of Mediterranean and Greek influence, with varied hues of sephardic life and contemporary elements reflected in it. We asked her about it , and she exclaimed “I am a “song catcher!”
