Daniele Bedarida sings melodies of the Jewish tradition of Livorno.
For centuries Livorno has been both a meeting point and global springboard for the cultures of the Jewish Mediterranean. The musical traditions of the Jews of Livorno, as represented in Daniel Bedarida’s collection offer one of the most significant and authentic records of the extraordinary crosspollination of cultures ancient and modern, popular and esoteric, Jewish and non-Jewish, Mediterranean and Italian, European and non-European that has been consistently gathered, stored, revised and circulated in this unique community since the seventeenth century.
Although restricted by religious norms to a narrowly defined area ofsocial interaction – the synagogue and the home – the liturgical music of the Jews in Italy never formed a musical world closed in on itself.
On the contrary, oral traditions, passed down from generation to generation, were unusually open to change, and were constantly exposed to influences from the surrounding musical worlds, including songs from all the Jewish communities of the Mediterranean as well as music composed specifically for the synagogue (in other words, not handed down by oral tradition), the non-liturgical music of the region – especially that of the Catholic Church, and a variety of musical forms both high and lowbrow, including opera.
