Someone asked about Mick's offering, Khosidl.
(Isn't Wikipedia is wonderful resource?)
Apparently it's some sort of Yiddish dance. See Jewish dance

Celebration at a siyum ha-Torah (completion of the writing of a Torah scroll) in a synagogue, Dubrovno, Russia (now in Belarus), ca. 1905.

You can find Mick's earlier rendition recorded on board MV Richmond in June 2011 at Khosidl, Mick W

If languages can dance, then Khosidl may indeed be a 'Yiddish' dance. This must be one of the few instances where a nation or culture has a language with a different name. Inuit, Arapaho, French... perhaps we have to go to India for another example: Gujurati (but this might be a culture as well, I don't know...), or China - are there Mandarin or Yue dances? We can confidently await repudiation from the anti-semantics (sic) amongst us, my life already.
