AVI AVI
AVI AVI (Heb. אָבִי אָבִי; "My father, My father"), refrain of "Bore ad anna," kinah by a certain Benjamin sung on the Ninth of av in the Sephardi rite. The fifth verse of the original version makes a derogatory reference to the Trinity, and was modified in some western communities. The tune, though substantially the same from Aleppo to London, exhibits interesting local variations. The European-Sephardi style is illustrated best by the Bayonne version: most of the typical Sephardi   characteristics disappeared, however, in the London variant. The Oriental versions are in the maqām Bayāt-Nawā and combine the melodic phrases at random to form a typical Eastern "endless melody." In some communities the hymn is sung in ladino under the title "La paloma" ("The Dove"). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: M.J.
