Pau Casals interpreting "El cant dels ocells" at the White house...
Itzhak Perlman performing "A Yiddishe Mamme" with his violin..
Spanish anthem vs. Catalan anthem
Note as well that... the Catalan anthem
it's much related to a Jewish religious song...
...while the Spanish anthem that it's strongly connected to a song from Al-Andalus
Spanish anthem (guitar version)
Anyone with two ounces of common sense will know the reason..
We may not forget that Jews were around the actual Catalonia from the days of the Phoenicians through the Roman empire, so were established there for centuries with their own idiosincracy so it is normal that they made some great contribution to the catalan culture. Furthermore, the direct ancestors of the royal Catalan family were Jewish. The grand-grandfather of Wilfred the Hairy was the exilarch Habibai Ben Natronai of Babylon, important but unknown fact from the history Catalonia .
A beautiful jewish-ladine song
and others too...
