Playlist at the bottom of the page

Hélène Engel recorded 5 discs from 1985 till today.

Her first record Chansons traditionnelles juives (traditional Jewish songs) (1985) is an exploration of the various traditions in Jewish music.

She then recorded La Serena (1988) in which she sings in Ladino, songs from Morocco, Turkey, the Middle-East and from Salonica.

In 1992 is published the disc, Errance, De Tolède … à Brooklyn which puts a parallel between the immigrants arriving in America, and those coming from Spain.

The album Ay Lu Lu (1995) is a disc with lullabies and rimes in Yiddish, French and English, reflecting the nostalgia of the past, the lost childhood, and also the transmission of a tradition from one generation to another.

Voyage, published in 2007, is based on a performance she gave with her musicians during several years. In this disc, the listener takes a trip through Jewish music, its several languages, Yiddish, Hebrew, French, Ladino, English, and its several countries, Poland, Ukraine, Morocco, Spain, France, Russia, Israel and America.
