Jacinta, a life in song

Born in Argentina, Jacinta began her musical career at the age of 12 by leading a Yiddish singing ensemble, the language of her childhood. When she moved to Paris in 1977, she integrated Judeo-Spanish songs into her repertoire. A multi-faceted artist, she performs on stage as an author, composer, interpreter and actress. Totally committed to her task of transmission, Jacinta leads since 2001 a choir of 120 people: the Jacintas Zingers.

The playlist below reflects this musical plurality which mixes tango, milonga, Yiddish songs, Judeo-Spanish and a French and Spanish composition by Jacinta.
