The Yemenite Jews - Jewish-Yemenite Diwan 

The Jews immigrated to Yemen in the 6th century BC and their community remained isolated for a very long time. That is why theirs is no doubt the most ancient and purest of all the Jewish tra­ditions.

Their repertoire (Diwan) is the sum of their devotional poems, which are sung and intoned outside the synagogue in their own homes.

Recorded in 1977 – 1978
Text by Noémi and Avner BAHAT
