“He did more for the Middle East peace process in eight days than Secretary of State John Kerry has done in two years. Is he a diplomat or religious leader? No, he’s a singer-songwriter…” – Vanity Fair
Israeli superstar David Broza is considered one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant performers. From his whirlwind finger picking to Flamenco guitar, percussion and rhythms, to a signature rock and roll sound, David Broza’s charismatic and energetic performances have delighted audiences throughout the world. Broza’s music reflects a fusion of the three countries in which he was raised: Israel, Spain and England.
Fresh from a very successful concert at New York’s Town Hall, Broza will bring his much lauded show to Islington’s Union Chapel on April 27th.
More than singer/songwriter, David Broza is also known for his commitment and dedication to several humanitarian projects, predominantly, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since 1977, when his hit song “Yihye Tov” first hit the airwaves, David Broza has been working to promote a message of peace. The song’s lyrics, roughly translated as “Things Will Be Better” struck at the heart of the issue – that people all over the world want peace. Now with a string of multi-platinum albums behind him, David Broza still strives to hone this message.
In 2013, Broza began work on a new project – bringing together Israeli and Palestinian musicians for 8 days and nights to work side-by-side in an East Jerusalem recording studio. The thrilling result is the new documentary and companion album, East Jerusalem West Jerusalem, a collection of thirteen songs that blends cultures, languages and styles into a powerful statement about collaboration and coexistence. The album, produced by Steve Earle, features a stirring duet with Wyclef Jean.
David Broza’s aspirations for East Jerusalem West Jerusalem reflect the lessons learned during its unprecedented creation—and from a lifetime dedicated to peace and greater human understanding.
East Jerusalem West Jerusalem is currently streaming on Netflix in the UK. Vanity Fair called the documentary “extraordinary” and added “if no one else is going to try and heal the world, he will.”
Broza continues to tour and record with music luminaries from around the globe. In 2007, a concert at Masada featured Broza with special guests Jackson Browne and Shawn Colvin. David Broza has appeared as a guest and shared the bill with Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and many more.
A powerful musician, passionate peace advocate and music industry innovator, David Broza awes and inspires audiences with his sincere message and musical allure.
Tickets for the Union Chapel concert are available now via their website: store.unionchapel.org.uk and all usual agents.
Preparations are under way for a new best of album set for release this Spring. Many of his catalogue albums are available in the UK on iTunes.
