In the Green Room with Three of the Greatest Living Israeli Musicians (Part 1)

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Join us for Part I: a conversation with David Broza, one of Israel’s most preeminent and popular musicans.

An international recording star and poet whose songwriting inspiration stems from his eclectic roots — Spanish, Israeli, American, you name it — Broza is committed to the idea that music is a platform for dialogue and tolerance. Broza’s charismatic, vibrant, and passionate energy is far-reaching and carries global impact. His presence as an entertainer, industry innovator and humanitarian continues to inspire and ignite meaningful listening for all generations.

The program is the first of a 3-part series of conversations with three legends of Israeli music. We will explore the background, influences and musical styles of each musician – and through each musician examine social and political challenges of the modern State of Israel.

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.

David Broza

David Broza is an internationally renowned Israeli singer-songwriter, recognized for his dynamic guitar performances and humanitarian efforts. His signature sound brings together the influence of Spanish flamenco, American folk, rock and roll, and poetry. Social justice and peace advocacy are embedded in Broza’s work; his 1977 hit song “Yihye Tov” remains an Israeli peace anthem. With over 40 albums released, many of which are multiplatinum, in English, Hebrew, and Spanish, Broza continues to tour globally both as a solo musician and with his various musical projects. Broza was born in Haifa, Israel and spent his teenage years in Spain and the UK. After returning to Israel, Broza started his musical career at age 22. His travels have contributed to his international sound and commitment to human connection, story-telling, and equality. At the core of his social justice work is the belief that music is a platform for dialogue and tolerance. His 2013 album East Jerusalem, West Jerusalem received widespread acclaim alongside a documentary of the same name which streamed on Netflix for 3 years.  The album, produced by Grammy-award winners Steve Earle and Steve Greenberg, was recorded entirely in the Palestinian Sabreen studio in East Jerusalem, featuring both Israeli and Palestinian musicians. He is the founder of the non-profit One Million Guitars, which gives underprivileged schoolchildren around the world hand-crafted guitars and the foundation of a musical education. In addition to running One Million Guitars, Broza is preparing to release his first entirely instrumental album, titled en Casa Limón, produced by Javier Limón (Paco de Lucia, Buika, Cigala). A modern tribute to the art of Spanish guitar, the album blends elements of flamenco, baroque, swing, and classical music with unparalleled grace. It is scheduled for release by S-Curve Records (BMG) in June 2020. Broza’s charismatic, vibrant, and passionate energy is far-reaching and carries global impact. His presence as an entertainer, industry innovator and humanitarian continues to inspire and ignite meaningful listening for all generations.
