Title:
Hodu: Jewish Rhythms From Baghdad (Iraq) To India
Category:
Cantorial-Sephardic

Order #: 01445
“Hodu,” in Hebrew, means both “India” and “Praise G-d” --and appropriate double entendre for a community that thrived in the most benevolent of diasporas. India was host to one of the oldest living Jewish communities in the world, with roots stretching back to biblical times. The Jews of Cochin say their roots may go back to the time of King Solomon. The Bene Israel Jews of Bombay claim their ancestors escaped Hellenic persecution in the land of Israel. The Baghdadi Jews, who set up thriving communities in Bombay and Calcutta beginning in the 18th century, have an equally ancient history: they trace their heritage to the Babylonian exile.This compilation of songs for the Sabbath and holidays features a blend of ancient texts, authentic melodies and contemporary rhythms accompanied by violin , kunnun, percussion, and oud. Lyrics are included in English and Hebrew. “A lovely collection of piquant recordings that will be a revelation to those who have not been exposed to this vibrant musical tradition.”...George Robinson -The New York Jewish Week.
