Description: 

A study of the liturgical and folk music of one of the most remote Jewish communities, the Jews from Daghestan and neighboring areas of eastern Caucasus. This study is based on field recordings carried out during the Soviet period in the Caucasus and among immigrants from that area in Israel, as well as older recordings from Radio Makhachkala. The book includes musical transcriptions and full texts of a selection of prayers in Hebrew and folksongs in Juhuri (Judeo-Tat, the language of the Mountain Jews) from the vast ethnographic and ethnomusicological research on the Mountain Jews carried by the JMRC. Accompanied by a CD, catalogued separately (Anthology of Music Traditions in Israel, vol 10).
