Abstract (Document Summary)

[Nini] and her artistic collaborators later decided to perform the songs in Hebrew, with Dor and Dan Almagor teaming up to to complete the translations. The disc's 14 songs feature beguiling melodies and beautiful harmonies. Nini's passionate voice soars on "Santa Lucia Luntana" and "Sia Maledetta L'Acqua." Her vocals are packed with feeling, and the listener is quickly swept up by the album's romantic ballads. It's amazing how well the Hebrew lyrics fit the Neapolitan music, with a prime example being the folk tune "Tammurriata Nera;" also enjoyable are "Nonna Nonna," "Serenatella" and "Era de Maggio." The Solis String Quartet complements Nini with its high-quality arrangements and compositions. The album has a clean sound, free of studio tricks and other diversions.
