lame joke...sorry...i used to like ben folds doing hava nagila hava...i din't know it was a standard jewish song....
are worth a look for anyone interested in eastern european folk/klezmer music. they're one of the thousands of interbred bands on constellation. better than a hawk and a hacksaw!
by Mogwai is based on a traditional Jewish hymn.
It's original, semi-improvised kletzmer music played by a variety of different groups and it's all absolutely mindblowing.
If you like jazz then get one of the original 10 volumes (just called Masada - they're all good), if you like stuff like Rachel's or Basquiat Strings get the Masada String Trio (almost telepathinc interplay between the 3 of them, far superior to either of those 2 artists) and if you like noise/rock get Electric Masada (after all Zorn did produce Mr Bungle and Boredoms).
