Music Video of the Day: The Jews of Uganda and Some White Hippy Kid

If you haven’t seen Pesach Stadlin’s Love Song to Islamic Fundamentalists (from a Jew), we highly recommend you hop over and watch it — it’s not exactly a YouTube phenomenon, but we suspect that, if Pesach was a 16-year-old girl in his pajamas singing the exact same song, it would undoubtedly be one.

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. Last year, Pesach made a trip to Uganda, home of (among other things) the Abayudaya Jews of Uganda. The Smithsonian Folkways Abayudaya CD is a great introduction to the musical virtuosity of Ugandan Jews — although a much better introduction is through Pesach’s YouTube videos of, in his words, “a little posse of 7 year old girls that showed me around town and boy did they love to sing!”
