    Default A song parallel Spanish/Sephardic/Greek/Bulgarian

    Hi all!
    Just felt like sharing this interesting parallel - I was listening to the Spanish Sephardic song "Durme, Durme" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awzYCrLqUKM when my Bulgarian grandparents heard it and recognized it as a Bulgarian folk song that went "Cherni ochi imash mome" and after some search I found there was a greek version "Apo kseno topo" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_pA2h3JuS4

    Do you think the Sephardic and the Balkan versions have something in common?
    Do you know other such folk songs that have covers in other languages, like Ederlezi? Do share!
