Lullaby for Debbie

Last week after I performed at the Sacred Music Festival in Kalamazoo MI, an audience member named Debbie told me that she heard that a lot of Ladino songs were lullabies. Most of the songs I performed were probably used as lullabies but I hadn't included any specific lullabies in the set. I promised her a link to one I performed awhile back. When I sat down to do that, realized I never posted the video I was thinking of. Nani means rocking ---

Nani means rocking --- Rocking - while I am rocking my son to sleep, I wish that he will live long enough to grow tall. Rocking - while I am rocking my son to sleep, I wait for my husband to come home from working late in the fields, he will be happy to see you. Rocking - while I am rocking my son to sleep, my husband comes home tired, long after I know his work has been done. Rocking - while I am rocking my son to sleep, I hope my husband will remember that I am the woman who has given him a son.
