Koudam El Maya - קודאם אל מאיא

Arguably the most popular Moroccan Andalusian song to date. It's a guarantee that if you can sing this song you'll have the whole room clapping and dancing to your liking. The song builds as gets faster as it goes.
The first stanza "Kumi Yehidati" can be sang to Kedusha or Kadish really nicely. You can even follow the second part of the Kadish with the remaining melodies of this piyut. The climax of this son is the nay-na-nay in the middle which its melody is often used to sing "VaAni Tefilati" during Minha of Shabbat. What can I say? I love this song.
