Sefiroth is a 10-piece electro-acoustic chamber ensemble playing contemporary interpretations of traditional Sephardic (Judeo-Spanish) repertoire, much of which dates back to the Medieval period and draws upon Arabic, Turkish, Greek and Eastern European influences.

The musicians in the ensemble represent several nationalities and between them are versed in a wide range of musical idioms including Balkan, Middle Eastern, Arabic, klezmer, rock, jazz, early and contemporary classical, electronic and improvised music.

Track Name: Abre tu puerta serrada

Abre tu puerta serrada,
Que en tu balcon hay una luz clara.
Ma el amor que yo a ti mi bela,
Partiremos los dos de aqui.

Si es por agradarte,
Na la mi sangre pronta por verte.
Si la mi sangre no te pudo convenser,
Na la mi muerte con plazar.

Esta hermozura tuya
Que el Dio te la hizo suvenir.
Ma esta hermozura tuya pura
No la merese otro que mi.

Por las calles que tu iras
De mi solombra te arrelumbraras,
Y ahes munchos echaras
Cuando de mi te acodraras.

[Open your closed door,
There is a light on your balcony,
But the love I have for you, my beautiful,
Let us go away together.

If it pleases you,
I would give my blood to see you.
If my blood does not convince you,
I am gladly willing to die.

Your beauty
Is a gift from God.
No one but I
Is worthy of your pure beauty.

Walking down the streets
You will be illuminated by my shadow
And you will sigh many sighs
Remembering me.]
