The representation of the Jewish mother in the Judeo-Spanish song

A radio program of the European Institute for Jewish Music, hosted by Hervé Roten

MUSIQUES JUIVES D’HIER ET D’AUJOURD’HUI - MARDI 13 MARS 2012, JUDAIQUE FM 94.8, 21h05

The Jewish mother is an omnipresent character in the Jewish imagination and its different forms of cultural expressions. That’s why we decided to dedicate a series of radio programs to this subject.
After the representation of the Jewish mother in the Yiddish song, this second part will illustrate the image of the Jewish mother in the Judeo-Spanish song, through a study of mother / daughter, daughter / mother-in-law (co-suegra) and the place of women in a society that remained for a long time patriarchal and tribal.

Our guest, Marie-Christine Bornes-Varol, Professor of Universities at INALCO, specialist in literature and language Judeo-Spanish, will be present to comment on the many songs that deal with these themes (La mala suegra, The understanding madre, Delgadita, Hijo mia querida, Madre, half madre, Durme, durme ...).
