I am a Rutgers University student researching the use of Judeo Iraqi music in the Jewish Community. If you are aware of, or participate in activities pertaining to Judeo Iraqi music, I would be honored to hear about your experience. Any other inquiries are welcomed.

well Jewish Iraqi Music is very reach. I am Hazzan at Beth Keneseth Yosef Haim in Jerusalem where we do every thing according to the tradition of Iraqi Jews. especialy Keri'at Hatora and all the Piyyutim during the whole year and in special events as Nissu'im Berith Mila etc.
we sing a lot of Piyyutim and every Piyyut has its special tune.
if this is what you ask about I'll be glad to continue corresponding with you

Haim -- Thank you for responding. right now my research is only focusing on the Iraqi Jews of America. However, if you know of any Iraqi Jews living near New York city, I would be honored to speak with them. If I travel to Israel soon, I would like to attend services at Beth Keneseth Yosef Haim. thank you

I would be glad to read about some of the Iraqi jewish music that you have already know. I mean Piyyutim and Ta'amey Hamikra.

I am half-Iraqi and trying to learn more about my people and my culture. I do not know anything about Iraqi Jewish music, unfortunately, but I would be interested in reading your research whenever it is finished. Yvonne

the Iraqi Jews have a lot of songs which are called Piyyutim. these songs are sung in Beth Kenesheth on Shabbath and Mo'adim and in many events as wedding Berith Mila Bar Miswa etc.
all the songs are written in a book called Sefer Hashirim Hashalem. there are also tapes that you can listen through them how the songs are sung.
the Iraqi Jewish songs use oriental instruments as: Violin, Ud, Kanoon etc. they have a lot of Arabic songs too.
also the Tefilloth are done with oriental tunes.

Dear Haim Salman,
Thanks for your reply. I know that Ashkenazi synagogues sing Piyyutim during High Holidays. Is there any similarity? Where can I find tapes of them?
I have heard of the instrument called the Ud. I think there is an Israeli story (which I sadly haven't finished yet) called Tarnegolet Kapparot where one of the Iraqi boys prefers his Ud to the western instruments.

well my brothers and I have recorded two tapes with all the Iraqi Jews Piyyutim for Shabbath Yom Tov and for events as wedding Berith Mila etc.
let me know where you live and I let you know where to get them.
I am sure you'll like them very much because they are sung with the authentic tunes which our fathers and forefathers used to sing in Iraq and here in Israel.

I am hoping that this message list is still active. My father's family was from Basra and Baghdad, but I did not grow up near an Iraqi commmunity. I am now living in Kansas and am trying to learn the Iraqi Nussach and minhag so that I can teach it to my children. I have seen the CD that Haim produced. Does anyone of a more complete recording. I am looking for the entire Kabbalat Shabbat, and Shacharit Shabbat.
Thank you very much.
