Description

HASIDIC [sic] SONG without words, was a MALE song. Hence few women are carriers... The first four tunes were taken off a wire recorder owned by Lazar Axelbank, who recorded his family singing at a house party... The question marks indicate doubt as to the type of NIGN (or tune) this might be... It may or may not be a Hasidic tune. Many tunes were table songs tunes [sic], during festivals and Sabbath and holiday meals... Mr. Fried states (in Yiddish) his grandfather was a Khusid of the Skverer Rebbe and he often sang this on Shabbos - zmiros - and on various other occasions. 41897 Ruth Rubin tape was digitized.
