AVRE TU

LADINO 

Avre tu puerta cerrada,
quen tu balc?n luz no hay
el amor a ti te vela,
partemos Rosa, partemos de aqui.

Yo demandi por la tu hermozura,
como te la dio el Dio
la hermozura tuya es pura,
la meresco solo yo.

Ladino - OPEN YOUR DOOR

Open your closed door,
because there is no light on your balcony.
Love may protect you,
let us go, Rosa, let us go away from here.

I have prayed for your beauty,
which is given to you from God.
Your beauty is pure,
its reserved for me.


Note:
Ladino - Judeo-Espan?l or Spaniolish -
was spoken by Jews who lived in countries around the Mediterranean Sea -
Spain, Greece, Morocco, Turkey etc.
Avre Tu is a Sephardic love song.
It is also translated and well known in Turkey.
The beautiful dance choreographed by Roni Siman-Tov is well suited to the words and Spanish melody, which probably originates from around Rhodes or Turkey.
