Conference: music, language and Jewish songs

April 21st 2017, Medem Center Arbeter Ring

Filmed conference (beneath), as part of the 1st edition of “Campus en Musique” festival, about music, languages and Jewish songs, by Hervé Roten, director of the European Institute for Jewish Music.

As far as we can find a Jewish presence in France, we find all the time meeting points between the Jewish communities and their surroundings.

These exchanges take place on different levels: commercial, scientific, linguistic, culinary… but also musical. Therefore, Jewish singers have been influenced by French songs and French singers by Jewish songs.

This conference, illustrated with many musical examples, aims to show the creative interactions between French and Jewish songs in the Ashkenazi, ladino and Judeo-Arabic worlds.
