Fiddling in Japanese

Thinkingwoman has "Fiddler on the Roof in Japanese" on her blog. It looks like it also attracted a racist comment... Never mind, that's humanity for you. Anyway, if you're at all familiar with the original Fiddler, you'll get a kick out of this. It's long, but I had to watch the whole thing, trying to interpret it for myself. It seems that 'sheeshkara' or something like that means 'tradition' in Japanese.

Thanks for that - so the Japanese can sing! Our son is over there at the moment teaching english - so it was great to see a little bit of what he loves so much over there - their sheer enjoyment and engagement with whatever they turn their hand to.
