Israeli superstar David Broza at Town Hall, January 7
(Published: November 10, 2016)

David Broza is regularly referred to as "the Israeli Springsteen," but the moniker belies the wide range of styles he combines in his music and the diversity of collaborators with whom he works. The singer-songwriter's new concert, David Broza & Friends, brings his varied musical explorations together in a single, signature performance. Starting the evening alone on stage, Brozawill introduce a band member or group of band members with each song, creating a show that culminates, Boléro-style, in an ecstatic big-band crescendo.

David Broza & Friends features guests including Ali Paris, on qanun, a rare 76-string instrument that dates back to the 14th century and is played by only a handful of people across the globe; and revered saxophonist Jay Beckenstein. Other performers include guitarist and composer Alon Albagli, drummer Yuval Lion, bassist Uri Kleinman, and jazz vocalist Tammy Scheffer, plus many other surprise artists.

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 dialogue, culture, music and tolerance. Now, with a string of multi-platinum albums-in Hebrew, English and Spanish-he continues to hone 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 garnered widespread acclaim for his 2013 album East Jerusalem West Jerusalem, produced by GRAMMY Award-winner 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. Vanity Fair called the documentary "extraordinary" and added "if no one else is going to try and heal the world, he will." East Jerusalem West Jerusalem is currently streaming on Netflix. Throughout 2015, Broza worked on another studio recording with the Andalusian Orchestra of Ashkelon and musical director/conductor Tom Cohen. The album, Andalusian 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.
