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."."


"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."
