Heartbeat, the Israeli-Palestinian youth music community, will launch their third US tour on February 20, 2014 to bring the voice and sound of a better future in the Middle East to America. The ensemble of Arab and Jewish youth artists (ages 18-22) has performed across Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Germany and the US and will now travel from Boston to Washington, DC for 15 performances at universities, music venues, and congregations.
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 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.
