[HANASHIR:5183] Re: Kol Han'shama

the "traditional" Kol Han'shama on Debbie's album is not, well,
traditional, the tune comes from a pakistani sufi chant and, so far as I
know, the Jewish community hasn't been singing it for more than 5 years!
We have to be very careful when we use the word "traditional" -- many songs
we think are Really Old are, in the large scheme of things, Very New.
