All gathered in Jerusalem to play the music of Morocco, which remembers Spain, which in its turn yearns for Jerusalem.
This CD brings together for the first time four different Moroccan Jewish musical repertoires which until now have been presented separately: Spanish women's songs from northern Morocco, sung in their original language (Haketia, the Ladino of the Jews of northern Morocco); songs in the Jewish Moroccan Arabic dialect; Moroccan Jewish liturgical music; and classical Andalusian songs in Hebrew.
The members of the trio have successfully managed to recreate the shared mood and distinctive rhythms of these four repertoires which pervade and suffuse pieces which on first hearing appear quite different from one another.
This CD presents a rare opportunity to discover the impressive variety displayed in the musical traditions of Moroccan Jewry and the basic shared musical elements common to the music of Moroccan Jews and Muslims alike.
