S’fira music is certainly an “a-choired” taste, but many Jews out there will be delighted with this thorough compilation.
To me, this music is reminiscent of Passover cakes, baked out of potato starch — trying a little too hard to be something they are not and not quite rising to the occasion. However, this year the style had some wonderful developments, capitalizing on the current beatboxing trend.
One can only dream of a Jewish Reggie Watts or his magical precursor Bobby McFerrin surfacing out there, one day.
If they do surface, odds are that it will be during the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot.
Watch the non-Jewish Reggie Watts out of control in Hymietown!
