Brooklyn’s Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings cook the sizzling latkes out of Hanukkah, all 8 days of it, in this video by illustrator Rich Terrana. The tune is on the Holiday Soul Party album (matching sweaters available; sorry, no yarmulkes ). The band recorded a live version of “8 Days” at the NPR studio in DC .
