Agadelcha - אגדלך

Image
This version of Agadelcha (see index for traditional version) is sang in Spanish Moroccan synagogues prior to the Korbanot of Shaharit, after the "siman."
The maqam is Istahalal.

Yahid Bimlucha - יחיד במלוכה

Image
This piyut is the same tune from El Eretz Azuva and many other songs for the holidays.

Yotzer Yehidati - יוצר יחידתי

Image
A beautiful song from Bakashot Parashat Beshalah. I sing this for Kadish usually on Shabbat Shira. It's also a great song to sing Lichvod Shabbat.
Maqam Hijaz Msirki.

Oru Bat Tziyon - אורו בת ציון

Image
It's been a while since the last post so I'm glad to post one of my favourite songs to sing. This goes beautifully with Kadish or Rau Banim.
The maqam is Istahalal.

Mevorach Shabbat - מבורך שבת

Image
This is the original song where we sing "Kedushat Shabbat" when Aliya Maftir goes up to the Torah on Shabbat. Easy to learn. It's from the Bakashot of Parashat Vayeshev. Maqam is El Maya.

Ten Commandment Aseret HaDibrot Moroccan - עשרת הדיברות נוסח מרוקו

Image
It's the climax of the entire Torah. The moment the world was created. The recital of the Ten Commandments in any synagogue is a special moment. In a Moroccan synagogue it's no different. More than that, the congregation has the custom to rise just as the hazan recites the holy words of the Aseret HaDibrot. For your listening pleasure, I have recorded the Ten Commandments in its entirety.
