David Broza is set to perform on Sat., January 7th at Town Hall in New York City. The concert will coincide the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. David will bring together an acclaimed roster of guests and friends, including singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin, jazz saxophonist Jay Beckenstein, and Palestinian qanun virtuoso Ali Paris. Other musicians include guitarist and composer Alon Albagli, drummer Yuval Lion, bassist Uri Kleinman, and jazz vocalist Tammy Scheffer.
Raised in Israel, Spain and England, Broza has been giving his charismatic and energetic performances worldwide since 1977, when his hit song “Yihye Tov” first hit the airwaves, promoting a message of peace. Broza is also known for his commitment and dedication to several humanitarian projects, especially a resolution to
Israeli-Palestinian conflict through dialog, culture, music and tolerance. Now, with a series of multi-platinum albums—in Hebrew, English and Spanish—he continues to deliver his message. Broza was awarded a Spanish medal of honor by the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, for his longtime contribution to Israel-Spain relations and his promotion of tolerance. A passionate peace advocate, he has also been named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Broza received widespread acclaim for his 2013 album East Jerusalem West Jerusalem, produced by American musician Steve Earle and Steve Greenberg, and recorded in its entirety in the Palestinian Sabreen Studio in East Jerusalem. The work, featuring a band of both Israeli and Palestinian musicians, resulted in a beautiful, intimate documentary of the same name.
Throughout 2015, Broza worked on another studio recording with the Andalusian Orchestra of Ashkelon and musical director/conductor Tom Cohen. The album, Andalucian Love Song, includes re-imaginations of some of Broza’s greatest hits, as well as some of the greatest works of renowned Arab composers including Abed Al Wahab, among others.
