Alex Bershadsky: Banu Choshech Legaresh

Hanukkah has begun, and we’re celebrating with a great video from Alex Bershadsky. This time he created a solo bass arrangement of the famous Hanukkah song “Banu Choshech Legaresh,” which translates to “We Came to Drive Away the Darkness.”

The bassist utilizes his incredible finger-style technique to play the melody and chords at once, then taking a solo over the song’s form.

Happy Hanukkah!
