A magnificent prelude, a group of singing Chassidim, sweeping rhythm, and sounds that beckon you to break out in dance. Thus begins the third album in the “Chabad with Moshe Laufer – Volume 3” series, which recently entered the final stage of production, and will be released – G-d willing- towards the end of Kislev,.
Four years after the first album in the series was published, Moshe Laufer – a great arranger, and producer Levik T, have done it again. They present a high quality album, full of superb Chabad Nigunim. More touching, more stirring, and more joyful; it outshines the earlier albums in the series.
The new album features leading Chasidic singing stars – Shlomo Cohen, Mendy Jerufi, Yoni Shlomo, Eli Marcus, Tzudik Greenwald, Simche Friedman, alongside Eli Laufer’s choir, popular Shira choir and an expanded children’s choir. Dozens of sounds, dozens of instruments; with mixing by the “sound legend” Eli Lishinsky.
The first two albums in the series made musical history; they sold tens of thousands, and have become a must in every Jewish home. Some of these nigunim became hits at weddings. Once again, the album producers selected exciting and emotional melodies that stimulate the mind, and musical artist Moshe Laufer added subtle new hues.
The album’s release is accompanied by an extensive campaign in which one of the nigunim in the album will be distributed to readers of the holiday edition of the popular “Bakehilla” weekly magazine. At the same time, an extensive interview with Moshe Laufer and other album stars will appear in the holiday issue of the “Kfar Chabad” magazine.
Special for the holiday – the first single from the album: listen to the Nigun Simcha (Melody of Joy) performed by Shlomo Cohen, whose rich voice provides a fresh touch to an ancient melody.
