info 

Yair Dalal could be an extraordinary catalyst for change in the Middle East. The Iraqi-Israeli teams up with other Arab and Israeli musicians for his seventh recording, part of a series of albums in which Dalal embraces the Judeo-Arabic connection. Through his musical collaborations divided tribes are momentarily reunited. Songs and prayers of peace are sung in Hebrew and Arabic, amidst the desert sound of oud strings and ancient drums. Dalalís violin magically resounds with the intent to fuse al musical forms East to West and transcend the political, religious and social boundaries between Arabs and Jews.
