David Broza performs for Celebrate Israel

by | Apr 17, 2015 | What’s Happening

Thursday, May 21, 7 pm, Sandler Center for the Performing Arts

For nearly 40 years, Israeli superstar David Broza has been considered one of the most dynamic and vibrant performers in the singer/songwriter world. Broza will perform live at Virginia Beach’s Sandler Center for the Performing Arts as the last event in the JCC’s Celebrate Israel series, presented by Charles Barker Automotive.

Broza’s charismatic and energetic performances deliver fusions of the three different countries in which he was raised: Israel, Spain and England. He has filled concert halls with his famous guitar playing, ranging from flamenco flavored rhythmic and percussion techniques, to whirlwind finger picking, to a signature rock and roll sound. Broza unites his three distinct cultural experiences with his ability to utilize the troubadour style tradition, featuring lyrics of the worlds’ greatest poets.

Broza’s global tours have resulted in collaborative performances with musical figures such as Paul Simon, Al Dimeola, Bob Dylan, Spyro Gyra, Van Morrison, Jose Fernandez, Sting and more.

In early 2014, Broza released the album, East Jerusalem West Jerusalem. Now on tour, he is presenting this album made in an East Jerusalem, Palestinian studio Sabreen, with Israeli, Palestinian and American musicians.

This very spiritual and uplifting music is not to be missed. Tickets for this final Celebrate Israel event are on sale both at the JCC front desk, 321-2338, and the Sandler Center and are $25, $40 and $55.
