Abstract

This chapter explores the manner in which Moroccan popular music, otherwise known as chaabi and the Jewish version which has been recently labeled chgouri, function as a common language between Muslims and Jews in contemporary Morocco. Focusing on the period after the Arab Spring and Morocco’s constitutional referendum, I develop the manner in which music has been deployed for the cementing of commonality within diversity and the intrinsic belonging of Jews to the contemporary Moroccan state.
