We are a group of young Israeli and Palestinian musicians hoping to embark on a concert tour through our communities to spread our music and build understanding and trust. The tour will consist of performances, presentations, and dialogue sessions at high schools and
community centers throughout the Jewish and Arab communities. We look forward to the tour’s kickoff in the 2011 fall semester in late October...but we need your help. We hope to inspire people, build trust, and spread some hope with our music.
HEARTBEAT is an international community of musicians, educators, and students using music to build mutual understanding and transform conflict. Founded in 2007 under a grant from Fulbright and MTV, Heartbeat’s programs seek to empower Israeli and Palestinian musicians by creating opportunities and spaces for musicians from both sides to work together, hear each other, and amplify their voices to influence the world around them.
