Can anyone tell me the name of the genre of the music popular in the 1920 and 1930. I don't mean Swing or Jazz. I mean songs like 'Oh, Donna Clara' and 'Lilli Marlen'.

Is there, or was there an artist by the name of Eddie Swarts; Shwarts....because I thought there was, I think he only had one big hit......this would have been back in the 80's

'Oh, Donna Clara' seems to be catagorized as comedy and caberet. The reference I found says it was composed by J. Petersburski and sung by Al Jolson. Although there is available a cd by Palace Orchestra out of germany or denmark, I'm not sure.
'Lilli Marlen' appears to be based on a World War I (1915) German poem by Hans Leip (a German soldier) and adapted into music by Norbert Schultze. Not sure what genre it would be called.
