(Stefano Saletti & Piccola Banda Ikona)

Nel 1492 la cattolicissima Spagna cacciò gli stranieri dal proprio territorio. Cominciò la diaspora degli ebrei sefarditi. Una violenza per milioni di persone: ebrei e arabi uniti dallo stesso destino. Una delle tante ferite tra Oriente e Occidente.

incisa da Stefano Saletti & Piccola Banda Ikona in Folkpolitik 2012

Hija mia mi querida
Aman, aman, aman
No te eches a la mar
Que la mar esta enfortuna
Mira que te va llevar

Que me lleve que me traiga
Aman, aman, aman
Siete puntas de hondor
Que m’engluta pexe preto
Para salvar de l’amor

Versione inglese

In 1492, Spain (incredibly Catholic at the time), expelled all foreigners from their territory. So began the diaspora of Sephardic Jews. A violent act for millions of people: Jews and Arabs united by the same fate. One of the many wounds between East and West.

My daughter, my dear
Aman, aman, aman
Don’t throw yourself into the sea
For the sea is stormy
It is going to carry you away

May it take me, may it pull me down
Aman, aman, aman
Seven fathoms deep
May a black fish swallow me up
To save me from love
