Heartbeat Music

In May and June 2010 sixteen Israeli, Palestinian and German youth musician, rappers, and poets (ages 16-21) took part in a one of a kind exploration of the past, present and future. Living and creating music together for one week in Jerusalem and one week in Berlin, participants of the project explored Hip-Hop and other urban art forms as tools for citizen empowerment and social change. The songs on this album are all original compositions by project participants.

The program was implemented by the Willy Brandt Center Jerusalem and Heartbeat Jerusalem, and was sponsored by Europeans for Peace and the Foundation for Remembrance,  Responsibility and Future.
