Ladino Evening with Norman
Cohen Falah and Kerensya
We are proud to present a memorable evening
of Ladino singing and music in the beautiful setting of London’s own ‘Ladino’ home,
the Spanish and Portuguese synagogue at Holland Park.
Ladino is the medieval Spanish language that Jews took with them
when they settled around the Mediterranean 500 years ago. Even
today at Holland Park, services on Shabbat and on Hagim include
prayers recited in Ladino.

A sensitive and versatile interpreter of Jewish music, Norman

mother and a Sephardi father, Norman studied Hazanut at the Latin-American
Rabbinical Seminary and music, guitar and piano at the National
