TRADITIONS playlist for December 4, 2016

Ron Olesko and David Broza in the WFDU-FM studio

Ron Olesko and David Broza WFDU-FM studio


On this week’s show, I welcomed acclaimed Israeli singer-songwriter and humanitarian David Broza to the studio. David performed live in the studio and discussed the documentary and companion CD “East Jerusalem West Jerusalem,” a project that brought Israeli and Palestinian artists together in an East Jerusalem studio for eight days and nights to record with David and co-producer Steve Earle. The result was collection of songs that blend cultures and languages to celebrate collaboration and coexistence. David also discusses plans for his upcoming Town Hall concert.
