The Berekah Project

7.00 if reserved online before Nov 27th. £10 on the night . (NUS/OAP £7.00)

These people make beautiful music and work for peace. What's not to love?

Berakah are an innovative band featuring musicians of Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith heritage. They believe that their message of peace, unity and positivity is shared by thousands of people across the country, and this year they took their music to places such as Oldham, Bradford, Liverpool and now London. Playing in synagogues, churches, schools and concert halls, Berakah’s performances bring people from different communities together in a way that only music can. The Times (Sept. 2006) said:

It is music to make you close your eyes and dance in your head — an arresting confection of jazzy improvisation, catchy Middle Eastern chords and the beat of the darabuka drum.”
This is Berekah's final performance for 2007 and

The evening will be hosted by Gary Cohen, the award winning writer/ director of the hugely acclaimed Channel 4 documentary "Judah and Mohammed". Gary is a film producer living and working in Israel and the UK. His documentary explores his belief that the lack of contact and understanding between Israeli Jews and Palestinians is a key issue which needs to be resolved if they are to live in peace.

As well as the music of Berakah there will be poetry by celebrated song-writer Pete Brown, co-writer with the legendary group Cream and responsible for songs such as “Sunshine of Your Love” and “White Room.” In the early 60’s Pete was also one of four poets who contributed work to the first Aldermaston anti-nuclear weapons pamphlet. I've also been asked to give a short talk.

As a special offer, tickets reserved via the web-site before NOV 27th will be at the special price of £7.00 . Tickets bought on the door will be £10. To reserve tickets send an email ,stating your name and how many tickets you require to:

The band say

It is an evening that promises to serve up emotion, passion, though provoking dialogue and, most importantly music from, and for, the heart.

I'd love to see you there.
