Lamoledet Shuvi Roni - למולדת שובי רני

Image
Another song in honour of Eretz Yisrael. A beautiful song that has taken the reins in Israel lately.
Am Yisrael Hai!

Ashir Lach Eretz Hemda - אשיר לך ארץ חמדה

Image
This song was composed by R' David Bouzaglo in honour of Eretz Yisrael. As we celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut this week, I felt it was appropriate this piyut for your liking.
It's a difficult piyut to sing, but once you master it, you will love it!
As Hazan, here and there, I sing the melody to the tune of Yigdal. It's hard to fit in, but it indeed works. Send me a message privately in the comment section if you want some advice on how to do it.
Am Yisrael Hai!

This is a simple song composed by Rabbi David Bouzaglo about David HaMelech. It's in maqam sika and I love to use it throughout the Tefila. Try it out for:

Pirke Avot First Perek - פרקי אבות פרק ראשון

Image
One of the beautiful traditions of Moroccan Jewry is the reading of Pirke Avot during the weeks between Pesah and Shavuot. While many Jewish communities around the world do likewise, Moroccan Jews chant the mishnayot is a beautiful tune that appeals to people of all ages. I can say this truthfully, since it is normally the children who stand up by the Teva to recite the mishnayot. Let's just call it a prelude to the Bar Mitzvah.
Here is the first Perek.
(note: The words you see on the screen may differ from the words you hear from my voice. I was using the Siddur Patah Eliyahu when recording.)
