This song is by Flory Jagoda, perhaps North America's foremost bearer of Bosnian Sephardic musical tradition. We learned this song originally as a duet with guitar, and commissioned our dear friend Ayanna Woods to arrange a version for trio.

I'm handsome, you're beautiful -- let's get married. Our children will be like the moon and the sun.
Thank you very much, little man, for this offer. But you ask too much for a bride price, and my father will not accept it.


Yo hanino, tu hanina
Mos tomaremos los dos
Los ijikos ke mos nasen
Komo la luna i el sol

Muchas grasyas, manseviko
Ke mandates koredor
Muchas liras me demandas
Non mi acheta mi sinyor

The Nightingale Trio is village harmonies, birdsong lullabies, and moonlit round dances. They reignite the flame of women's folk music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
