La canción de la semana #89

This week's song is Enpesare, from the latest album Haran by Pharaoh’s Daughter. According to the band leader Basya Schechter, "this is the oldest existing Ladino poem. It’s the story of Joseph through poetry. The poet was from 15th century Spain." The lyrics (transliterated) can be found here.
