Chassidic music

With the hassidic movement born in the 18th century appeared a new style of Jewish vocal music. The nigunim (lit. "melodies") are songs formed with melodic phrases usually sung without words...

The melody is the most important in nigunim, that goes along with some "day day day" or "ya ba bam", repeated many times.
According to the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the hassidic movement, it is not exclusively the study of holy texts which can bring you closer to G.d, but also the singing and dancing.
