After bringing you renditions of Hava Nagila from India, Thailand, Israel, Russia, Texas, the UK, Cuba, Estonia, and a Beatles tribute band, we still haven't run out of new and unusual versions. This one is by Brandon Stone.
Stone has been very popular as a songwriter, producer and composer in Russia, Ukraine, the Baltics, and in almost all former Soviet republics, but it is especially in his native Georgia where he is revered as a singer, artist, and a folk hero.
For this version of Hava Nagila, he has assembled a cast that looks like it was recruited at a costume party, but they really can dance and sing. Enjoy!
