The Diwan Saz ensemble collects the sparks of traditional music from the past and transcribes it into sacred contemporary music.
*
We believe in the power of music which can provoke a feeling of healing and liberation. in the past 8 years we performed in many festivals around the world in front of a diverse audience.
*
From New York to India, from a mosque to a synagogue, we were fascinated by the ability of our music to create a dialogue and rise above any controversy or politics.
*
we feel very grateful for that.
This is the essence of music for us.

"The unique qualities of the saz reflect the nature of the Diwan Saz's music: music created from several sessions ...
The performance from all these encounters created something whole which was rich and beautiful."."

-HAARETZ-

"But the most inspiring and quite symbolic performance of the night, was given by the Diwan Saz.
A group which embodies the ideals of the Festival - diversity and mutual respect. Diwan Saz marries together two great traditions that coexist in the Holy Land - that of Jewish and Muslim music …A true music of peace and harmony."
