'Hava Nagila' And Country-Fried Indie Rock

Email a Friend

Tonight on Soundcheck, a deep look at the ubiquitous, if not universally beloved song from Jewish weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, and now, surprisingly, the Olympics, "Hava Nagila." We hear from Museum of Jewish Heritage curator Melissa Martens about a new exhibit devoted to that song's history. 

Then, Southern-infused indie rockers Band Of Horses drop by the studio to perform songs from its newest record Mirage Rock.
