Jewish/Israeli Simcha Dancing
Metropolis plays a mixture of contemporary tunes for Jewish Weddings and also provides the option for more traditional Jewish/Israeli Simcha Dancing.
Traditional Jewish Music at your party will provide a wonderful opportunity to enjoy joyous songs and traditional dancing.
It is traditional to include a section of Hebrew music and dancing known as a ‘Hora’. This comprises a medley of popular tunes, including Hava Nagila (‘Come Let us be Glad’), and Siman Tov U Mazleltov (‘May Good Luck Come to us’).
Hava Nagila ‘Let Us Rejoice’
This wonderful tune derives from a Romanian folk dance-song. Who wrote it? Well opinion is divided. According to some the man largely responsible for the song’s existence in its present form is Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (from Latvia), who as a young cantor set out to collect the oral traditions of his people and to make them available to the world of music.
