Posted By on November 24, 2017

This traditional lullaby is sung in Ladino, a Jewish hybrid language also known as Judeo-Spanish. Performed by the Janet and Jak Esim Ensemble (Antik Bir Huzun / Judeo-Espanyol Ezgiler - Kalan Muzik, 2005). Many varieties of the lyrics are sung throughout Europe and North Africa, attesting to the widespread influence of the Sephardic Diaspora.
