about

MOTHER TONGUE is Carolina's definitive third album comprising a collection of vivid, passionate medieval melodies in ancient mother tongue.

At its core lie the sensual Ladino songs of Sephardic Spain borne by mothers, lovers, sisters and daughters of the Diaspora.

In a fusion of cultures from past to present, these glorious songs unfold the story of a vibrant people through romances, life, love and loss.
