Victoria Hanna recently released a music video that’s absolutely mesmerizing. In it, the Jerusalem-born singer stands, primly dressed, at the head of a class chanting the Hebrew alphabet. With the utterance of each letter, she makes a different gesture, as if she’s teaching some kind of secret language. Then a hip-hop beat kicks in and the music and movements grow wilder.

Vox Tablet contributor Daniel Estrin paid Hanna a visit to find out more about what the video is all about.
