"Ocho Kadelikas" - a Sephardi Jewish Hanukkah song!

There were several versions on YouTube - this one had the right "feel" to me.

The right feel, indeed. I like it. ^_^ Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks! We lit our own ocho kandelikas for the final night of the holiday this evening.

Klezmer bands can be a lot of fun - although a Klezmer group doing a Sephardi tune in Ladino is rather like a German group doing a Spanish tune ... .

(Ladino is to Spanish as Yiddish is to German: it was the everyday language of Jews in the Mediterranean countries.)
