Lecture by Hervé Roten – “Chansons françaises, chansons juives: une interférence créative” (French songs, Jewish songs: a creative interference)

As part of the 1st edition of “Campus en Musique” organized by the Medem Center Arbeter Ring from April 21 to 23, 2017

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 took 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.
