Hava nagila - let us rejoice

Which version you like most? See below.

Once again I listened to the touchy and beautiful version of Hava Nagila in French and Hebrew by Kuwaiti singer Emma Shah (she sang this not without consequences unfortunately, but she is brave):

While listening I got drawn to the related videos mentioned in the sidebar of YouTube. A selection:

Hava Nagila Chinese style:

Hava Nagila Indian style:

Hava Nagila Iranian style:

Hava Nagila Thai style (s/he starts with the soundtrack of Exodus):

Aaah this is how you should play the song on a violin!

Hava Nagila Russian-American style:

And Bob Dylan... hah:
