Today’s song is “Happy Chinooka (A Hanukkah Song)” by Gangstagrass & Kosha Dillz. I found this song on a Billboard article featuring a Hanukkah song playlist from Dillz. According to the article, this is in celebration of Smokey Robinson’s famous pronunciation of Chanukah or Hanukkah.
Dillz says “How you spell it, how you sound it, it don’t matter how you gonna pronounce it.” The spelling of Hanukkah in English isn’t as important as the educational story to learn. And this song gives you the history of the holiday. “It started back in 164 BC in Jerusalem with my clique the Maccabees, they got attacked by Greeks….”
The song has been described as bluegrass meets hip-hop. The video a party and animal farm in a Brooklyn bar. It is also a fun way to celebrate and promote the holiday. You will be singing along in no time. Watch below and for more information check out his official website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. Get the song on streaming platforms like Spotify and Amazon.
