Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ladino lyrics for Misirlou
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ladino lyrics for Misirlou
The cd is called "Kantikas para syempre," the group Los Pasharos Sefaradis, Miserlu on track 11. These spellings are those on the cd. Amazon translates the subtitle as "Old songs which our grandmothers used to sing 500 years ago."

This seems to be the source of the recording I made of the track some years ago, as the timing (2'50") is close.
I can't locate a copy, but this center may help:

Discussion at the Sephardic Center website-
"Los Pasharos Sefardais constitute a milestone in the revival of the Turkish Sephardic culture by seriously researching and studying a language and the secular music of their ancestors since 1978. Contrary to other interpreters of Sephardic music in the western world, they give great importance to the lyrics of the songs and take great care to enunciat each word clearly and sing in as authentic a manner as possible, the way their grandmothers used to, with the oriental technique of both singing and acting every song....."
The group has released 5 albums of Judeo-Spanish songs.
