We have an ever-evolving “morning” playlist that we listen to most school days as we get the kids out the door. Bucimis performed by the extraordinary mandolin player Avi Avital has been on our morning playlist for almost a year now and I think it really sets the right kind of tone for frying bacon, making coffee and screaming at kids to find their jackets and bags.

I just came across this video for a performance of it. The percussion intro is a bit drawn out but worth it (though skip to about 1:30 if you want to get to the song). Plus, smoking accordian!

Enjoy!
