Despite the trials and stress leading up to the holiday, there's almost no better feeling when you sit around the table with you family celebrating the Pesah Seder. The Moroccan tradition of singing "Bivhilu" and the other glorious songs, make our feast one of the best in the world. Here is the most of the Hagada recorded for you to learn at your convenience. I omitted any section that had to do with Shabbat, so please take note. The songs found in the section of Nirtza and Shir Hashirim are also omitted. This recording is Le'iluy Nishmat my brother in law, Yosef Amram ben Avraham Shelomo, whose nahala is today, 2 Nissan.
Of all my years recording piyutim and tefilot, the one recording that I get most comments about is the one of Megilat Esther. I have met people from around the globe who have told me that they learned the Megila from my recording. It makes me proud of what I do and gives me the strength to keep on doing it. Thank you everyone for your support!
Here is the entire Megila read with Moroccan Ta'amim.
Arguably the most popular Moroccan Andalusian song to date. It's a guarantee that if you can sing this song you'll have the whole room clapping and dancing to your liking. The song builds as gets faster as it goes.
The first stanza "Kumi Yehidati" can be sang to Kedusha or Kadish really nicely. You can even follow the second part of the Kadish with the remaining melodies of this piyut. The climax of this son is the nay-na-nay in the middle which its melody is often used to sing "VaAni Tefilati" during Minha of Shabbat. What can I say? I love this song.
