COUNTRY: Ukraine (Pale of Settlement)
“Nigun Simcho” is an uplifting melody that is a favorite of ultra-observant “Chasidic” Jews who remain deeply connected to observances and culture (such as music and ways of dress) from 18th century Eastern Europe. A nigun is a melody that is sung using “vocables” — sounds rather than lyrics — and repeated with increasing intensity as a way to engage the community in a musical experience that is mystical and spiritually profound. Listen to this version of “Nigun Simcho” from Chabad.org.
