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.
For our 2nd song in honour of Avraham Avinu, here is the classic Sephardic melody of Cuando el rey Nimrod.
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:
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.
