Jewish cradle songs part 2

PLAYLIST
Mothers sing cradle songs since the beginning of times...
The words and melody of a cradle song aim to soothe and calm the child in order for him to sleep well. By the singing, a close and affectionate relation builds itself between the child and the mother.

Melodies and rhythms change according to the local influences, the traditions and the language. A Yiddish cradle song won’t have the same sound as a Judeo-Spanish song.
Cradle songs are an important part in the transmission of a culture, a heritage, a future...
