Pahjamah (An Oriental Novelty)..1919..S.R.Henry aka Henry Robert Stern.

Continuing with my oriental themed tunes, this is a very good example of the genre. According to the title page, this was written as a song in collaboration with someone called O.Onivas with lyrics by Frank Warren. It is shown as being dedicated to Nazimova, a Google search revealed that she was  Alla Nazimova, a Russian actress who was  living in the US at the time. Her bio is interesting and is worth a look on Google. The original key was F but I found that it worked better in C (A min.)...The score and midi are in the library....Steve.
