Presensya

(Judo-Spanish, France) The story of Presensya is first and foremost the story of friendship. Hélène and Isaia met in Lyon and shared the same enthusiasm for traditional Spanish-speaking songs, especially Sephardy.

Since 2006, they have given several concerts in festivals, and various celebrations.
This repertoire made a special echo in their heart and their memory, and they record in 2008, a CD of Sephardic songs entitled: Roots.

In 2018, a new album is born: "Meetings"

Several artists played with them at different moments; David Bruley - percussion, Eva Ellosi - violin, Jasser Haj Youssef - violin, Ruben Tenenbaum - violin, Wassim Halal - percussion, Mario Gomez - vocals and percussion, Paul Mindy - percussion.

Today, Presensya is enriched with Corinne, violist and violinist who feels deeply touched by the music of people in exile.
