an aleph bet song by Darshan :: אלף בית – דרשן
February 1, 2016at 9:43 pm

http://darshanproject.com -Celebrate Hanukkah with a Psychedelic Hebrew Animation!

It’s that time of the year again: menorahs, dreidels, and of course, psychedelic hamsas. Wait, is that a thing? Brush up on your aleph-bet as you travel through time and space in “Aleph Bass,” this crazy language-learning video. From filmmakers Brian Savelson and Abbey Luck, and the musical maestros of Darshan (Eden Pearlstein and Shir Yaakov Feit), this trip includes Kabbalistic mysticism and super sick beats. Guaranteed, you’ve never seen anything quite like it.

RAP LYRICS:
Letters are the building blocks of all of God’s creation
Kabbalistic keys unlock the heart of human nature
Metaphysic molecules of mystic nomenclature
Torah is the Tree of Life in musical notation

Speaking into being, existential occupation
For servants of the Source of Light and Root of Revelation
Reading into meaning, covenantal calibration
For students on the path of learning language liberation

focus exclusively on the less familiar but captivating culture of the Jewish communities of Spain/Portugal, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia.

Past SMF performers had included Yemen Blues, Yair Dalal, Matisyahu, Moshav, Asefa, Assaf Avidan and more.

Kol Nidrei קול נדרי /Automatic Toys
September 20, 2015at 4:29 am

We’ve always done our spiritual prep for Yom Kippur with Erez Yechiel’s ‘Selichot’ album, which you could stream here. Listen to that album and then go to a Sephardic beit knesset and you’ll feel like you are hearing the band or at least a cover band play the greatest hits (or maybe we’re spoiled from going to Yitzchak Bitton’s Moroccan shtiebel). Well, in comes Automatic Toys with a different vibe and take on another Yom Kippur classic, ‘Kol Nidrie’, the Aramaic introduction to the holiday.
