Reggae Chanukah

Reggae Chanukahby Alan Eder

Music of African origin and inspiration underscores well-loved songs for the holiday of Chanukah

From the Caribbean: One drop reggae, the Rastafarian Nyabinghi heartbeat of thanks and praises to the Almighty, and Ska’s upbeat skanks. From West Africa: Traditional Ghanaian dance drumming and highlife. From Middle Eastern maksum played on doumbek and riqq (with clarinet) to batteries of Brazilian and Latin percussion as samba meets mambo for some salsa on their latkes.

Reggae Chanukah is the work of two dozen extraordinarily talented and generous artists, many with international reputations. Their lands of origin, native tongues, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, religious affiliations, and even their ages span a wide spectrum
