Hava Nagila continues to crop up in locations around the globe. Whenever we find a new performance anywhere in the world we try to share it with you.
Chemical Klezmer is a new group of a dozen amateurs in Paris who specialize in performances of music from Eastern Europe. This week they lit up the Paris night playing Hava Nagila at Le Gibus, a popular nightclub and concert hall that usually features Hip Hop and Rock music.
But Hava Nagila always works its magic and in no time had the audience joining in with clapping and shouting to the classic Jewish song.
We're taking the next two days off to celebrate the last days of Passover and we'll be back with more Jewish humor and Yiddishe nachas from Jerusalem on Wednesday.
