Moschiach Now (Jewish “nigun”)

A nigun (Hebrew: ניגון meaning “tune” or “melody”, pl. nigunim) or niggun (pl. niggunim)
is a form of Jewish religious song or tune sung by groups. It is vocal music, often with
repetitive sounds such as “Bim-Bim-Bam”, “Lai-Lai-Lai”, “Yai-Yai-Yai” or “Ai-Ai-Ai”
instead of lyrics. Bible verses or quotes from other classical Jewish texts are sung repetitively
to form a nigun. Some are sung as prayers of lament, others may be joyous or victorious.
