Constantinople, 1902. In an Amman café, Greeks, Turks, Armenians and Sephardic, descendants of the Jews expelled from Spain in 1492, meet to sing clandestinely. They sing in an oriental style love songs, humorous songs and songs about their political and social reality.Jako the Muzikante, Jako the Go-Getter, struggles to live by singing at weddings and bar mitzvah parties while making what he can from his pleased, and often inebriated, customers. Shortly thereafter, the Ottoman Empire falls and Greece, Turkey and Armenia adopt this music and adapt it within their new borders, but the Sephardic melodies fall into oblivion due to the complicated situation of their performers."Ven al Luna Park" is the first album of this project, carried out by Xurxo Fernandes after years researching the Sephardic communities of Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey and Israel. It is a 78-page, 13-song hardcover Book and CD pack, with a lot of information and references to the songs, produced by Xurxo himself and written in Ladino, English and Rashí. “Ven al Luna Park” also represents the first project for the recovery of Sephardic urban music by Jews of peninsular origin.
