Pharaoh’s Dance

Passover is almost upon us, and with it the glorious Passover foods including no bread, no cookies, no crackers, and no cakes. But hey, we have matzah (read: wheat-based cardboard), so who are we to complain?

For the uninitiated, Passover celebrates Jewish Exodus from Egypt which took place somewhere between 1600 and 1200 BCE, depending on which historian or archeologist follow. To remember we have a “seder” during which we retell the story of the enslavement via the Pharaoh and our subsequent Exodus, eat tons of matzah, and do a ton of other crazy cool customs that you’ll only really find out about if you stop on by.

So, going with Miles Davis’ assumption that at some point in time, some Pharaoh must have danced, here’s a song to get you in the Passover mood.
