Description: 

The Present study deals with (i) the performance of the Judeo-Spanish repertoire maintained until today by the Sephardi Jews from two main areas of their Diaspora - the eastern Mediterranean (the Ottoman area, later Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, and Yugoslavia), and the western Mediterranean (Morocco), (ii) the performance of the secular and paraliturgical Sephardi repertoire sung in Judeo-Spanish. It considers musical performance as one of the criteria for the definition of the genres that constitute the Judeo-Spanish repertoire as well as an analysis of the changes which performance undergoes when the repertoire of informants, recorded in fieldwork, is rendered by professional musicians on stage.
