Description
This is new version of a Sephardic song that I posted before, shortened, and with awesome vocals by my friend Javier. (Oops. I misspelled his name initially.....)

This uses a ton of synthesizers, some real and programmed percussion, one oud and one saz, and about 5 recorders.

Wow ... I m trying to read about the history of this song (Turkish?).The creativity on playing arranging and directing is a true master piece .

Sephardic
This is a song that comes from the culture of the Jews that had to flee Spain in 1492 and settled all over the mediterranean. They had their own language called "Ladino", and there are many (orally transmitted) poems and songs from that culture. They have only fairly recently (little over a century) been written down, so it's not quite clear how much the music has changed over the past 5 centuries. It feels old, but it's hard to make an objective statement.

Old
I understand your statement , I have been following all these kinds of music Sepherdic , Sicillian , Andalusian and many more around the middle ages and I m sure you are as well you have great knowledge about that era of time and music that came from such era and off course till now Middle East and Middle Asia people still perform such kind of music rooted in their history and culture . All I know ones upon the time the world was playing almost the same kind of music but with different colors and languages .I might be wrong but I like to be believe in it .

Wonderful Music
I love the atmospheric accompaniment. Lots of great layers. The vocals are beautiful, as are the recorder and strings (oud?)

lyrics
Los bilbilicos cantan
Con sospiros de amor
Mi neshama mi ventura
Estan en tu poder

La rosa enflorese
En el mes de mai
Mi neshama s'escurese,
Sufriendo del amor

Mas presto ven palomba
Mas presto ven con mi
Mas presto ven querida,
Corre y salvame

Translation:
The nightingales sing
With sighs of love
My soul and my fate
Are in your power

The rose blooms
in the month of May
My soul and fate
Suffer from love's pain

Come more quickly, dove
More quickly come with me
More quickly come, beloved
Run and save me

That flute is stunning.
This reminds me of several things, yet doesn't sound like a copy of anything. The melodies played on the flute sound like something medieval at times, yet this piece as a whole isn't. Very clever stuff and a good listen too.

Quality work Vic!
It seems to me you've given this a contemporary feel while remaining true to an original aesthetic.

Excellent vocals, arrangement, performance and production.

Cheers

Spanish roots, with a touch of Arabia. an unexpected blend, and i like the intimate sound of the recording as a whole. rather 'cozy.' very cool production.

Wonderful, authentic sounding post, Vic. I really like this a lot. Xavier does a great job with the vocals and your orchestration (it seems more than a mere arrangement :-)) is engaging, sympathetic and revealing. Most songs on MJ boast about how many guitars are in the mix... One oud and one saz, and about 5 recorders - priceless. Thanks, Peter.

Now that I read your reply to Feter
I can hear the influences of Jewish music and Spanish music combining in this ,there is the lilt of the klezmer with a brushing of
catalan ,well not guitar ,but plucked instrument sound veering towards a flamenco....in other words like a lot of european music, a melting pot,a mezze or a tapas of tune and harmony.Very nice indeedy.

I find lately ,having attempted to wrassle the Accordion,mandolin and banjo that I am turning more towards traditional and probably folky kinds of music,like this .....must be growing up !

Cheers

You can really hear...
...the Mediterranean blend in this song...It's one thing, but each part reveals influences and origins...Pretty neat... The arrangement supports this, in cycling through the different vocal and instrumental bits...

The lyrics are in that tradition that could be about either secular or sacred love...

You come up with really interesting music, Vic, time after time...

Thrilling
glimpse into the past and a culture different from my own. Rich and vibrant in the playing and in the singing. Thank you.
