I was recently gifted with some niggun field recordings from a gaggle of Chassidim here.  The bulk of these come from two main tischen in the Chassidic world, Channukah and Tu B’shvat.  Most of these niggunim come from the Boyan tisch, though there are also ones from Slonim, Nedevorna and Premishlan.

They are real rough around the edges, but I feel that they capture the spirit of the rawness of a tisch: thousands of chassidim crowded into one room, clapping and screaming along when appropriate, and on the especially rowdy ones, getting swept up in the ecstatic fervor of the mystical shtetl mantra.
