Tim, do you know about Blond Blond? Was he indeed from Morocco?
Avatar 8:01pm tim abdellah:

It means "your kaftan is open".
  8:03pm Chris:

Blond Blond was Algerian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Gary:

Thank you, Chris! I found references to him on the Jewish Morocco blog, so I made an assumption :)
  8:04pm Chris:

I gotta update the name of that darn thing ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Gary:

Oh, it's YOU! ... haw haw ... well, hey there!
Avatar 8:06pm tim abdellah:

Hi Chris!!! "Kaftanek Mehloul" was a hit again in the 1990s in Morocco in a version by the Jewish Moroccan singer Pinhas.
Avatar 8:07pm northguineahills:

What was the name of the Hasid guy who did reggae/dancehall who played at the Apollo? It's been a while since I've heard him.
Avatar 8:07pm tim abdellah:

Whoa - and that was just a cover of Najat Aâtabou's "Chouffi Ghirou"!
  8:08pm Chris:

Hey Gary! Hey Tim! I got that Pinhas version on cassette. Killer.
Avatar 8:09pm northguineahills:

Maghreb = Morocco + Algeria, sometimes Tunisia. (used to refer to the Atlas mountain area.)
Avatar 8:11pm northguineahills:

Or, if you go by the Maghreb Union of 1989, also Libya and Mauritania (and Spanish Sahara by default being controlled by Morocco)
Avatar 8:11pm northguineahills:

errr.., Western Sahara (they used to be known as Spanish Sahara).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm listener james from westwood:

Seriously digging all these Yiddish cuts. I used to get into work early enough to hear lots of Nachum's shows, well before the online music programming opposite JM, and I would always wish he'd play more Yiddish cuts.

Rare chance to listen live...and loving it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm coelacanth:

i was wondering if you'd play some John Zorn!
(i also wonder if you'll play Ofra Haza; but i'm sure the die is cast.)
Avatar 9:37pm hyde:

this painkiller is great. i never saw this band, but i did see naked city that was the thrash thing he did before this.
Avatar 9:38pm tim abdellah:

LOL - I saw Painkiller once, back in '94 at the Knitting Factory, I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Gary:

Alas, Sarit Hadad ate up all the time I might have had for Ofra
  9:38pm Jeff g.:

Oh yeah. You promised Zorn, and so Zorn was delivered.
Avatar 9:38pm Mayuko:

I like this Painkiller thing!

In the accounting that every Jew silently makes when faced with an example of the culture, I declare this medley BAD FOR THE JEWS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Gary:

^I give the beat a 10! (Out of 100.)
Avatar 9:46pm Mayuko:

I don't know why, and never knew what this song was, but this Hava Nagilah was something my teachers would play and let all the kids dance to when I was in elementary school. Feels very strange now.
Avatar 9:46pm Mayuko:

(Not that version from the Disco Fever, though!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Gary:

OMG, that's hilarious, Mayuko!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Gary:

And, just FYI, you pretty much can't get more Jewish than Hava Nagilah
Avatar 9:49pm hyde:

@Mayuko that really is hilarious

Avatar 9:52pm Mayuko:

It IS hilarious! and I never even knew that was a Jewish song. I don't think anybody did either. And yet it's so popular. Ask any Japanese person around you, I bet s/he has the same experience as I do (if they're over 30's... not sure about young people)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm coelacanth:

ah ha! i figured it was something like that. i never knew; and i'm glad to hear it!
Avatar 9:55pm hyde:

wow, i have never heard this demo before.
