Psalm 146-Judeo-Spanish Tradition-הַלְלוּיָהּ הַלְלִי נַפְשִׁי -תְּהִלִּים

The following video is a recording of Psalm 146 in the Judeo-Spanish tradition (Sephardic). The Judeo-Spanish tradition is the custom of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who settled in the Ottoman Empire which encompassed present-day Turkey and much of the Balkans.

For a liturgical piece in the Spanish-Portuguese tradition which reflects the Western Sephardic tradition, please see my video titled Tehilat Adonai.
