about

A recording from the Western Wind Workshop 2015 of a traditional sephardic song. I'm singing verses 2 and 4, and everyone sang verse 5.

The story tells of a Spaniard who encounters a beautiful woman in the Moorish quarter who claims to be from his own homeland. He offers to take her back with him, and she accepts. By the time they arrive back home, he has realized that the beautiful girl he brought home was actually his long-lost sister.

lyrics

Una tarde de verano pasi' por la moreria
y vi una mora lavando al pie de una fuente fria

Yo la dije mora linda yo la dije mora bella
deja bever mis caballos desas aguas cristalina

No soy mora caballero que soy de espana nacida
que me cautivaron moros dias de pascua florida

Si quieres venir conmigo a Espana te llevaria
y la roba caballero donde yo la dejaria

Lu lu lu...

Avran puertas y ventanas balcones y galerias
que por traer una esposa os traigo una hermana mia
