Pesuke Dezimra (shabbat) part 1 - פסוקי דזמרה (שבת) חלק א

Image
Here are the first set of Pesuke DeZimra on Shabbat which begins with למנצח מזמור לדוד after Hashem Melech until Hallel HaGadol - הודו לה׳ כי טוב.
Yigdal which follows Hodu, can be sung in many tunes, but the Spanish Moroccans sing the same tune each week. I did not include it in this recording as I will record it at a later time.

Habibi Yah Habibi - חביבי יה חביבי

Image
This song originates from the Middle East and is sung by all sects of Sephardic Judaism. In fact, thanks to the musician Yossi Piamenta z"l, aka the Jewish Jimmy Hendrix, this song became known even amongst the Ashkenazim. It has a classic middle eastern melody and is sung on all happy occasions. The maqam is kurd.

Ya'alat Hen - יעלת חן

Image
This piyut is usually sung for the bride or a zeved habat/fadas (naming of baby girl) but its source is the Bakashot for Parashat Toledot. It's usually followed up with the piyut Shochant BaSade which I will record at a later time.

Agadelcha - אגדלך (נהוואנד)

Image
This beautiful melody from the Middle East is well-known among all types of Sepharadim. It fits perfectly for Kadish and Rau Banim. It's official maqam is nahawand which is similar to sahli.

Az Yashir Moshe maqam Raml Maya - אז ישיר משה מקאם רמל מאיא

Image
As mentioned in previous posts of Az Yashir Moshe, hazanim often sing the shira to different maqamim weekly. Recorded here is the shira to the maqam of Raml Maya. The first third is recorded to the tune of Dodi Yarad Legano of Parashat Bereshit/Lech Lecha. The second third (nashafta) is the tune of Bene Elyon and the final third is a faster melody in the maqam. For Az Nivhalu I add an additional tune that can be sung but it's not necessary.
Type "Az Yashir Moshe" in the search button above or check the index under "tefila" to see other tunes I've recorded.
