Move over Latka Ball – Chanukah (Honika) Electronica will knock your dreidel off.
When Smooth-E, aka Eric Schwartz recorded Honika Electronica last fall, it’s pretty safe to say he didn’t expect to become a party franchise.
Chanukah Electronica (yet another spelling) is a musical Chanukah celebration with top-notch music, comedy and food created by JConnectLA and Eric Schwartz, with partners The Chai Center, American Friends of Magen David, Jewish Free Loan, and LA Blueprint. Musical headliner’s Naked Rhythmâ€” LA’s premier world music and electronica ensemble â€” were joined by the hilarious Smooth-E and LA’s own Shankbone for an incredible send off to Chanukah at The Joint. More than three hundred young Jews ended Chanukah crowded in, up to their chins in Modern Tribe’s No-Hold Texas Dreidle, chocolate coins, home-made latkas, and party size sufganiot. They party rocked the Joint until late into the night.
