Israeli And Palestinian Youth Musicians At Hillel

Heartbeat Poster (2.28) Heartbeat, the Israeli-Palestinian youth music community, have just launched their debut U.S. tour this month to bring the voice and sound of a better future in the Middle East to America. The ensemble of young Arab and Jewish artists (ages 17-21) has performed across Israel, the Palestinian Territories and Germany.

Based in Jerusalem, Heartbeat is an international non-profit organization uniting musicians, educators, and students to build mutual understanding and transform conflict through the power of music. 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 influence the world around them.

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 U.S. communities and the Heartbeat movement in the Middle East.

7:30pm, Thursday, February 28, Brown/RISD Hillel Social Hall, 80 Brown Street
