Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Sephardic repertoire is both rooted in the reality of daily life, and infused with real poetry. The subjects include Songs of love and marriage; songs about the beauty of the sea or of women; a lover's lullaby to his beloved; songs of rejoicing and songs about magical nights of passion.
