Ramón Tasat is a songcatcher. Like the heroine of the new film by that name, he is a musicologist engaged in preserving a musical legacy.
Ramón Tasat is a gem. He sings with passion and true belcanto technique. I was also impressed by the seamless weaving of the operatic and Jewish liturgical traditions.

Here in Portland we just had a fantastic weekend with Cantor Ramón Tasat. It was a celebration of Sefardi music and culture and he was a total mensch to work with.
He came in on Thursday night where he led an amazing rehearsal with our choir. He spent as much time on the spiritual aspects of each prayer as he did on the music itself. Our choir loved it...
He was an inspiration to the choir as well as me and everyone was very glad they had participated in this special weekend.
