Description: 

Comparison of a study of the songs of the Hara Kebira (large Jewish quarter) with Robert Lachmann's study of 30 years earlier of those of the Hara Sghira (small Jewish quarter) reveals that the Jews of Djerba adopted musical traditions common to other societies that served their particular cultural needs.
