Israeli superstar David Broza has been considered one of the most dynamic and vibrant performers in the singer/songwriter world. His charismatic and energetic performances have brought to worldwide audiences a fusion of three different countries in which he was raised — Israel, Spain and England — filling concert halls with famous guitar playing, ranging from flamenco-flavored rhythmic and percussive techniques, to whirlwind finger picking, to a signature rock ‘n’ roll sound. Mr. Broza unites the three worlds by utilizing his ability to take on the troubadour tradition, featuring lyrics of the world’s greatest poets.
More than a singer/songwriter, Mr. Broza is also well known for his commitment and dedication to several humanitarian causes, predominantly, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Beginning in 1977, he has been working to bring the message of peace to the masses by joining peace movements and singing what has become the anthem of the peace process, his hit song, “Yihye Tov.” Since that time, Mr. Broza has released over 30 albums in Hebrew, English and Spanish, many of which have become gold and platinum records.
Mr. Broza’s latest release is Andalusian Love Song, with the Andalusian Orchestra of Ashkelon, under the direction of its music director, Tom Cohen. The music intertwines different styles and includes some of David’s greatest hits mixed with other distinguished works, including compositions by such renowned Arab composers as Abed Al Wahab. Among his other recent releases, Mr. Broza dedicated an album to the unpublished poetry of US singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, called Night Dawn; and he released his first completely self-written and composed Hebrew album, Third Language.
The year 2014 saw the release of one of the most challenging albums in Mr. Broza’s long career — an album recorded in its entirety in the Palestinian Sabreen Studio in East Jerusalem, with the help of American multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Steve Earle as producer. The collaborative work of the Israeli and Palestinian musicians, sound engineers, camera men, chefs and many others who came to assist and be part of the eight days and nights, produced a beautiful, intimate and special album and documentary, East Jerusalem / West Jerusalem. Throughout 2015, Mr. Broza has been touring and promoting this latest work.
In 2006 David Broza received the “In Search for Common Ground” Award along with Palestinian musician/composer Said Murad, and in 2009 Spanish King Juan Carlos I decorated him with the Spanish Royal Medal of Honor for his longtime contribution to Israel-Spain relations, and for his dedication to promotion of tolerance and conflict resolution.
