Sra. Hazan's entire recorded repertory (10 songs in Ladino; 12 in Turkish, and 2 in Greek) were re-released on Todas mis esperansas, reviewed here: One song also appears on the CD Es Razon de Alabar.

For more information, see also this record label page: Metropolitan.


Born April 15, 1896 in Salihli, Northeast of Izmir (Smyrna), the third child of Moshe and Rivka Ninio. As befits her married name, Hazan was born into a family of cantors. She moved to Izmir around 1915 and to New York City around 1920. She married Israel Hazan ca. 1925.  Sometime after Israel's death ca. 1936, she married Joe Rosa.

She was the President of the United Sisterhood Benevolent Society (in the Bronx?). She concertized at her synagogue, singing and playing the 'oud. She sang in Turkish, Greek, Ladino, Armenian, French and Hebrew. The liner notes to Todas Mis Esperansas relate that she initially declined when fans requested she record, saying her husband "made a good living." Eventually she relented and with her husband's consent, entered the recording studio. She produced commercial recordings in Turkish, Greek and Ladino in the early 1940s for the Kaliphon and Metropolitan label. 

She died on November 21, 1995, in New York City and is buried in Cincinnati, OH.
