This playlist is dedicated to the children’s songs repertoire.

Children’s songs are traditionally passed on orally, like sayings or stories. The use of a certain rhythm helps to learn the song.
Among this playlist is a recording of the Hebrew alphabet by children from Yemen « Aleph-bet : Apprentissage chanté de l’alphabet, Yémen » taken from (with a CD) Musiques liturgiques juives : Parcours et escales de Hervé Roten
