  • David Broza

    Israeli superstar David Broza is considered one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant performers.  From his whirlwind finger picking to Flamenco percussion and rhythms, to a signature rock and roll sound, David Broza’s charismatic and energetic performances have delighted audiences throughout the world.  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. Broza’s latest album, The Set List, captures his best-loved songs culled from studio recordings and live performances over the years. A powerful entertainer and industry innovator, David Broza awes and inspires audiences with his sincere message, energetic performances and musical allure.
