YARDEM DUO - sephardic music, Spain
YARDÉM creates a unique musical repertoire inspired by the historical and cultural evolution of early Andalus, Mediterranean region and Sephardic musical traditions. Sephardic folksongs derived from the fusion of Castilian romance, Sephardic Jewish, Arab and early Andalusian music. The figure of the Sephardic woman was very important both as a central character and as a transmitter of the songs. Nuances and melodies inspired by lullabies sung by grandmothers, songs of romance, women, songs from the heart all passed down from generation to generation. YARDÉM was created in 2006 by Francisca López (vocals & percussion) and Pacoseco (guitar & percussion).
