Best wishes, Thomas.
I am very happy to share news from the Jewish Music Research Centre at Hebrew U., announcing the e-release of "Eastern Mediterranean Judeo-Spanish Songs from the EMI Archive Trust (1907-1912)"
https://jewish-music.huji.ac.il/content/22952. The full 78 tracks selected for this project are available for streaming, and the accompanying booklet is a free PDF download.
The booklet presents absolutely phenomenal years-long scholarship into the song texts, the artists and their milieu by Edwin Seroussi and Rivka Havassy, with invaluable assists from Judith R. Cohen and Risto Pekka Pennanen. Discographic research was supplied by Mike Aylward and me.
I hope you enjoy the release. Let me know if there are any questions.
