Indian Hava Nagila

In case you can't believe an Indian version of Hava Nagila exists, you should check out Sadia Shepard's book, "The Girl From Foreign: A Search for Shipwrecked Ancestors, Forgotten Histories and a Sense of Home," about rediscovering her Indian Jewish roots.

This blog has apparently inspired a trend. Swing over to the blog, Mixed Multitudes for "Around the World With Hava Nagila" where you can catch different interpretations of the song that's sweeping not just the nation, but apparently, the world! Because you haven't lived until you've heard Hava Nagila with bagpipes.
