Composers: Ferran Savall | Traditional

Sephardic music.

Everyone has probably heard the story of the Jews from Spain in 1492: they were to convert to Christianity or leave the country. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel left the Jews no other choice and many therefore left their homeland. They settled in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. They brought the key to their home (La Yave) with them because ‘you never know, you might be able to go back…’
In their hearts were the songs which became mixed into the new culture, sung in Ladino.
Nowadays, these songs are still released on CD, thankfully, because in that way we are still able to enjoy the Sephardic songs.
