LYRICS 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.]
Erotokritos 07:14
Y'ala Y'ala 07:53


Sefiroth is an international collective of musicians founded by brothers Nick and Alex Roth to explore and reimagine traditional Sephardic (Judeo-Spanish) repertoire with a contemporary aesthetic. Sung in Ladino, these ancient songs weave timeless stories of love, loss and yearning for home, evoking the lands in which the Sephardic diaspora settled: Iberia, Mediterranea and the Middle East. The group’s arrangements are as porous and wide-ranging as the history of the Sephardim, combining acoustic and electric instruments, improvisation, modern harmonies and trance-inducing rhythms.

“I really enjoyed listening back again and again...I love the way you keep the spirit of the traditions alive yet do something totally different at the same time.”
Fiona Talkington, Late Junction (BBC Radio 3)

“Really, really beautiful…this music has an energy that is difficult to describe…exhilarating with wonderful contrasts.”
Bernard Clarke, Nova (RTE Lyric Fm)

"Explores the spaces between the sounds as much as the notes themselves… like abstract painting with music.”
Glyn Philips (worldmusic.co.uk)
