Daphna & The ClassiCats
Ethno classical Jazz
Daphna & The ClassiCats is an adventurous jazz quartet
weaving together standards, original material, iconic classical
pieces, Jewish folklore and world music with creativity
beyond genre boundaries and with a humorous wink.
Daphna Levy was born and raised in Tel Aviv. Descending from a cantor
lineage and a member of the Levy ancient tribe of spiritually elated
musicians, she grew up with a deep passion for music.
At the age of ten, attending a Gospel choir live concert made her realize that singing was her calling.

The album was recorded in Tel Aviv and NYC with
