Lecture : French songs, Jewish songs, a creative interference

April 21, 2017, Medem Center Arbeter Ring

A filmed lecture, as part of the 1st edition of “Campus en Musique” organized by the Medem Center Arbeter Ring, about music, languages and Jewish songs, hosted by Hervé Roten, director of the European Institute of 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 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.

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.
