Hava Nagila

Tradition is a wonderful thing. It binds us to the past and to those who are no longer with us. But that does mean that we can have some fun with tradition.

Hava Nagila is a song that within the first few notes, the listener knows the song and the people who are connected with it. I’ve known this song since I was a child. While I love the traditional Hava Nagila, it’s nice to hear a more modern take on this song.

For many, this is the traditional Hava Nagila.

I like this adaptation because while it keeps to the origins of the song, it speak to the modern audience.

Now this is a fun Hava Nagila. It adds a pop flair while integrating latin dance feel to the song many grew up with.

To me, religion and tradition can still live on. It’s just a matter of realizing that sometimes a new angle can keep it going.
