Being Born Is a Miracle - Of Memory and Exile
Author and professional storyteller, Oro Anahory-Librowicz was born in Morocco into a traditional Sephardic Jewish family. She studied in Paris and New York before settling in Montreal as a professor of Spanish, but she has remained deeply connected to her roots.
“Jews are the People of the Book, and of memory,” says Oro, “a singular people who have maintained their beliefs far from their ancestral land. Their age-old stories have sustained them, allowing them to preserve their identity throughout their exile. With this album, I offer a humble tribute to the countless generations that came before and bequeathed to me tales of wisdom, spirituality and humour.”
With Being Born Is a Miracle, Oro uses music, voice and unique sound mixing to create a beautiful exploration of the theme of exile, and how stories help us all to remember who we are.
This album has two discs: one in English and one in French, with different stories on each volume.
