Drume, Drume~ Jewish Turkish lullaby



A beautiful Jewish/ Turkish Lullaby I came across.

Here are the Lyrics

Durme, durme hijiko de madre,
Durme, durme s’in ansio y dolor;
Sienti joya palavrikas de tu madre.
Las palavras di Shema Yisrael
Durme, durme hijiko de madre,
Con hermozura de Shema Yisrael

English Lyrics

Sleep, sleep, mother’s little one, free from worry and grief
Listen, my joy, to your mother’s words, the words of Shema Yisrael
Sleep, sleep, mother’s little one, with the beauty of Shema Yisrael
