Although the current lyrics originate from Tangiers, Morocco in the late 1800s, the song goes even further back almost to the time when the Jews lived in Spain. It is arguably the most "Sephardic" song in the world. So popular that it has been recorded by many modern day Jewish artists.
I sing the first stanza of the song and go directly to El Adon. It fits perfectly. This fits tremendously with any quatrain song especially:
- Lecha Dodi
- Rau Banim
