It’s the Hanukkah edition of This Song! Adrian Galvin, aka Yoke Lore, plays his own brand of blissed out folk pop. Listen as he explores how singing “In the Window” with his family as a child during Hanukkah opened his eyes to the deeply connective possibilities of music. And you’ll definitely want to hear his theory about music and magic.
