Most of the music today is probably steeped in Hasidic tradition.
The use of music in Hasidism was widespread. A central tenet of Hasidism is happiness in the service of God. Therefore, some of the greatest Rabbis would lead hundreds of followers in song. The goal – uplifting the spirit of the masses.
Alternative Jewish Music
In today’s day and age, many talented musicians borrow or use aspects of music that don’t originate in Judaism.
They artfully combine Jewish texts with not-so-Jewish music. This creates unique and entertainingly powerful tunes.
