Which role plays religion in the music culture ?
Wether it is an accompaniment to the cult, an expression of the worshippers or the work of non-religious composers, music holds a particular place in the religions.
Three people will discuss this question, Jean During, ethnomusicologist, specialist of music from Central Asia, Hervé Roten, musicologist specialized in Jewish music and director of the European Institute for Jewish Music and Jean-Clément Jollet, musicologist.
