Daphna Levy is an adventurous jazz singer, songwriter and arranger who began her musical pursuit playing the upright bass and later on studied jazz piano and theater. Her vocal artistry ranges from dynamic and gutsy to soft and bluesy. Improvisation is Daphna's second nature, and her sound and style are often described as reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan.
Daphna's album Late Night Journey features highly acclaimed tenor sax player Lew Tabackin. The album was recorded in Tel Aviv and NYC with an international band of musicians from the US, Israel and Europe.
Daphna holds an MA degree in Far Eastern philosophy and her musicianship is guided by the spiritual freedom that meditation creates. “For me," she says, "jazz is a kind of Tao - a route created while walking. It's a pathway towards healing and feeling connected; a way of touching people; a journey of self expression.”
"Daphna Levy is a wonderful singer
with a full understanding of the jazz tradition.
She has great intonation and a wonderful sense of adventure
and playfulness when she sings."
