About Susana: Born in Havana to a Cuban Jewish family, Susana Behar grew up listening to not only Cuban music but also the traditional Sephardic songs of her Turkish grandparents. While living in Venezuela, she began to pursue her passion for Jewish music while also exploring her love of Latin American folk songs. In 2007, Susana founded The Sephardic Music Ensemble and developed an extensive repertoire, helping to preserve this integral part of Jewish culture. A recipient of the 2015 Individual Artist Fellowship Award from the Florida Department of State, she has performed at festivals and concerts in the United States, South America, Mexico, Canada, Japan, and Israel. Susana has released two albums, La Galana y El Mar (2010) and TAPIZ (2018). She lives in Miami and performs regularly throughout South Florida.
