Di Nigunim is an anarcho-klezmer punk collective from San Diego. Politically and musically radical, Di Nigunim plays an intense brand of punk rock inspired by traditional Jewish music employing an expansive rotating roster of musicians who rip shit up on accordion, piano, sax, trumpet, and a fuck ton of drums. Think a more dynamic and rougher Gogol Bordello and you’re on the right track. Traditional songs such as “L’Cha Dodi” and “Havenu Shalom” are sung in Hebrew with vocals from everyone, creating a sonic atmosphere of a socially lubricated and riotous Jewish wedding. Throw this one on at your next socially conscious dance party.
