Heartbeat’s 2013 US Tour

Posted on the 25 February 2013 by Notlobmusic @notlobmusic

My sincerest apologies to my friend Avi Salloway and the members of Heatbeat, I thought I had posted news of their tour here, but after making it a Cecilia's Choices choice back on February 20, forgot to do so!
I had the good fortune to see Heatbeat as part of the Concord Unitarian Universalist service yesterday. Those living in the Boston-area have two more opportunities, tonight at BU and Tuesday at Brandeis. Complete tour info here.

"HEARTBEAT creates opportunities and spaces for young Israeli and Palestinian musicians to work together, hear each other, and amplify their voices to influence the world around them."

Founded in 2007 under a Fulbright-MTVu award, Heartbeat creates opportunities and spaces for young Israeli and Palestinian musicians to work together, hear each other, and amplify their voices to influence the world around them. Sharing in sustained music-based dialogue, Heartbeat youth develop creative nonviolent tools to express themselves and become a voice for their communities.Visiting some of the world’s most celebrated universities and music venues, the tour program will feature uplifting performances interweaving traditional and modern Eastern and Western music. Heartbeat members will further engage audience members through interactive workshops and will share their experiences of growing up amidst the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, highlighting their creative effort to build a better future as members of Heartbeat. Each event offers a unique window into the lives of these courageous young artists and will forge lasting connections between US communities and the Heartbeat movement in the Middle East.  Heartbeat’s youth led movement combats the tidal wave of separation, fear, violence, and injustice with powerful sounds and voices calling for cooperation, equality, and peace. The Heartbeat message inspires people of all backgrounds to work together to be the change we seek.All tour performances are open to all ages and free except where noted.
