Title:
Shbahoth - Iraqi Jewish Songs from The 1920's
Category:
Sephardic-Cantorial

Order #: 01299
SHBAHOT is the Iraqi for ‘songs of praise’. This anthology presents for the first time on CD the greatest of the Iraqi singers in historical recordings from the 1920's. The Iraqi Jewish community was, until the mass immigration of 125,000 Iraqi Jews toIsrael in the early 1950's, the oldest of all the Diaspora communities, dating back to the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and the expulsion to Babylon 2,500 years ago. Shbahot are sung on the Sabbath and on other important holidays suchas Succor and Passover or pilgrimages to the tombs of Ezekiel or Ezra. Although sung by the “Master of Praises” ,he would be joined by the community in singing and clapping as can be heard on tracks 7 and 8. In the 1920’s, when these recordings were made, nearly all instrumental performers in Iraq were Jewish and when Iraqi Radio was established in 1936, the entire instrumental ensemble except for the percussion, were Jews.
