The Rhythm Atlas 61: Hanukkah Music Special 2018-12-02

From Denis McGilvray | Part of the The Rhythm Atlas series | 58:58

On this special edition of the weekly program, we’ll explore the many facets of Hanukkah music from around the world. We’ll hear some traditional klezmer tunes, several pieces from the new album 'Shimmering Lights' by Yale Strom's Broken Consort, songs from the Sephardic Jewish culture that has roots in Spain, and some festive modern takes by artists such as Pink Martini with Ari Shapiro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Julie Silver, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, and Carole King. Many of the songs speak of the traditions associated with Hanukkah: gathering for parties with family and friends, lighting the candles on the menorah, and enjoying delicious food and drink. Also featured throughout the program are several spoken pieces from the wonderful album 'Oy Chanukah!' In these pieces we hear about Hanukkah traditions and reminiscences of Hanukkah celebrations from the early twentieth century by elders in the Jewish community. It's an eclectic mix of Hanukkah music with a little something for everyone.

Many countries and regions around the world have their own unique traditions for Mardi Gras and Carnaval, and they often include a similar variety of social activities such as feasting on special food and drinks, masquerade parties, colorful public parades, and - of course - fantastic music. Like the many varieties of gumbo stew that you can find throughout southern Louisiana during Mardi Gras, all of this music is a blend of different ingredients that have come together to make something new and oh so good. So grab a little something to eat and drink, and put on your dancing shoes as we get our party started...
