An award-winning Israeli singer and songwriter, who will perform concerts in İzmir and Istanbul, said she would perform in Palestine if she were invited.

Speaking to the Anatolia news agency, Judaeo-Latino music artist, Yasmin Levy said violence and death in the Middle East could no way be justified and she would willingly go to Palestine for a concert if she were invited there.

She knew wars would end one day but that the situation would not change easily. Despite the ongoing dispute between her country and Palestine, she would be happy to perform there, she said.

The lyrics she would sing for the two countries would be, "I am extending my hand my brother, and you extend yours too, and we touch each other, we need this," the musician said.

 Levy said there was a song with these lyrics on her new album, and she wished she could go to Palestine to sing it but regretted that politicians were making it difficult.

Levy, is an Israeli singer-songwriter of Judaeo-Spanish music whose father was also a composer and cantor.

With her distinctive and emotive style, Levy brought a new interpretation to the medieval Ladino/Judeo-Spanish style by incorporating more "modern" sounds of Andalusian Flamenco and Persian, as well as combining instruments like the darbuka, oud, violin, cello, and piano.

Levy’s work earned her the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation Award for promoting cross-cultural dialogue between musicians from three cultures.

Levy will take the stage Wednesday night in İzmir´s Ahmet Adnan Saygun Art Center and Thursday night in Istanbul´s Türker İnanoğlu Maslak Show Center. Tickets are available at Biletix
