Diwan Saz is a multicultural group made up of Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Bedouin musicians who perform ancient music from Central Asia, Turkey, Persia, and the Holy Land. The melodies and texts incorporate the spirit and music of Sufism and the musical heritage of the Holy Land. Diwan Saz explores this music in depth, playing, composing and transposing texts and melodies from the various ethnic and folk traditions. Promoting peace and understanding through their music, Diwan Saz illustrates another side of Israel, not often reported – a place where diverse cultures have co-existed for centuries in close creative harmony through, among other things, music.
