    Watch: When the Canadian YouTuber Tries to Understand Chasidic Music

    Have you ever wondered who “Tanya” is? Canadian internet personality known by the handle “PortuguesePai” is attempting to decipher the meaning of Hasidic songs, despite not understanding a word of Hebrew. It’s worth watching this just to hear his take on the iconic song Full Story, Video

    A Canadian internet personality known by the handle “PortuguesePai” is attempting to decipher the meaning of Chasidic songs, despite not understanding a word of Hebrew.

    Over the past few weeks, the Youtuber has uploaded a number of reaction videos to Hasidic music videos and concert performances, drawing thousands within a matter of hours. He has reacted to a number of prominent Hasidic and Israeli singers’ videos by Lipa Schmeltzer, Avraham Fried, Mordechai Ben David, Yaakov Shwekey, Nissim Black, and Hanan Ben Ari.

    The channel first began delving into the world of Orthodox Jewish music following a request a month ago to review the 2008 performance of “Yerushalayim” by the Miami Boys Choir, a video which has gone viral on TikTok.

    To his surprise, PortuguesePai’s reaction video to the song drew thousands of views, prompting him to produce additional views reacting to other songs popular in the Orthodox Jewish world.

    Undeterred by his lack of any knowledge of the Hebrew language – during a review of Avraham Fried’s 2007 performance of the song “Tanya”, PortuguesePai assumes the titular Tanya is referring to a woman who broke the Chasidic singer’s heart – the channel’s creator relies in part on user feedback to clarify the meaning of the songs featured in the reaction videos.
