Exils décalés : les registres de la nostalgie dans les musiques palestiniennes au Liban

Abstract : Palestinian cultures are irrigated by the 1948 trauma, year of the Exodus of over 700 000 people among which a part is then getting durably settled in Lebanon. Memories are worked by this Nakba event, the disaster, according to different modalities recovering political leadership con icts and individual stake of narration. The maintaining of a nostalgia feeling taking place around a few amount of references and symbols related to the lost country are to be directly linked with exodus temporalities, ways of feeling it within different refugees’ generations and on its duty of memory. The music produced in the orchestras linked to different political organizations is directly used for a memorial project and aims at the identity support. But, within this cultural formalism a multiplicity of diversions is appearing which are doing justice of personal emancipation and of exit from collec- tive orders stakes. The institutional nostalgia registers are then crossing those of lived nostalgia developed by individuals about their personal route, times and ages of their own life. Within nation- alist musics, various registers are getting mixed that way producing “unwedged exodus” throwing back to divergent temporalities of the collective and of the individual.
