Aviva Chernick launches a new album: La Serena.
Come and join the celebration.

After many years of studying and playing Sephardic music, collecting these beautiful melodies and learning from mentor Flory Jagoda, Aviva has finally captured these songs in the recording studio.

Now it’s time to share the album and to celebrate its release.

This collection is primarily of songs from the Jews of Spain and the Balkans, traditional and original melodies with rich poetry in Judeo‑Spanish (also known as Ladino).

This album expands on the limited notion of La Serena (the Siren) as a female creature whose voice is intended solely for seduction and destruction. The voice and the music are lush, bold and joyous.

Join Aviva and her quartet: Justin Gray (bass and bass veena), Joel Schwartz (electric and resonator guitar), and Naghmeh Farahmand (Persian percussion), with guests Ernie Tollar (winds), Maryem Tollar (vocals).

September 19th.
918 Bathurst Street
Doors Open: 7:30pm
Show: 8pm

La Serena will be available for sale on CD and Vinyl at the show.
