We never seem to run out of new interpretations of Hava Nagila. It's played all over the world in every vocal, instrumental, and dance version you can imagine.
When you take three violinists and combine them with a trumpet and a set of drums, and throw in a trio of colorful dancers, you can predict that the results will be spectacular.
We're not exactly certain where this sequence was filmed, but we found clues that show a Portuguese influence. So we think this Avalon production came from either Portugal or Brazil, but that's about as close as we can get. If you find any other clues that will help to pinpoint the location, please add them to the comments below the video.
With Sunday being Rosh Chodesh Adar Sheni, we're heading into a Purim state of mind and will be sharing lots of Purim videos and skits during the next two weeks. So enjoy this Hava Nagila interpretation in the meantime. Monday will bring the usual Joke to Start the Week, and our Purim celebration will start Tuesday and run through Purim on Sunday, March 16.
