Minush is the story of a young woman named Minush strolling down
a street in Rhodes carrying a basket of carnations, some red, some pink and some
white. A young man falls in love with her and hopes her "Mazel" will
go far beyond where the arrows from his bow can fall. (though the song is mostly
sung in Ladino here is an example of Hebrew words interspersed with the old Spanish
dialect still used in the Sephardic communities).
