Judeo-Spanish Songs for the Life Cycle in the Eastern Mediterranean / Cantares Judeo-espanoles del Ciclo de la Vida en el Mediterraneo Oriental

24th volume from the Anthology of Music Traditions in Israel, this double CD, attached with a very rich booklet in Hebrew and English, was released in 2014 by the Jewish Music Center of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under the direction of Edwin Seroussi.
The recordings and comments were made by the musicologist Susana Weich-Shahak who did a remarkable work of collecting and research. More than 87 songs, for most of them accompanied with music, trace the different moments of life in the Judeo-Spanish communities of Eastern Mediterrannea, from birth to death, passing by lullabies, children’s songs, wedding songs, etc.

A historical anthology, beautifully presented, for anybody who wishes to plunge into the heart of a tradition in its true authenticity.

Purchase the double CD.

Irme quero
Con grande verguenza
Morenica a mi me llaman
Oy que relumbror
Y el nuestro novio
Bueno asi viva la consuegra
La tora la tora
La reina tiene dolores
