Music


Music had a prominent place in the lives of Iraqi Jews. Alongside the traditional genre of shbahot (praises), chalri and dakakat, jews were pioneers of new musical styles. On display, are traditional musical instruments alongside instruments imported from the West. Photographs and documents facilitate tracking these changes and learning about the contribution of Jewish musicians on the development of Arabic music in Iraq.
