​Axis of Equals 

"A multiplicity of voices is a template for healing."

Middle Eastern, Arabic and Jewish music combining old world sounds with contemporary approaches


Lorin Sklamberg (The Klezmatics) and David Ashkenazy 
Adam Matta and David Fiuczynski with Planet MicroJam Institute
Sonny Singh (Red Baraat) and Adam Matta
More artists TBA

Axis of Equals offers visions of varying cultures and textures, integrated through musical collaboration and invention. Artists will create music that combines an ear for traditional sounds with contemporary arrangements, instrumentation and groove. Pop and urban rhythms intersect with ancient musical forms from the Arab and Jewish worlds, celebrating the new and the old, the catchy and the eclectic.

Proceeds from the evening will go to benefit New Stories Leadership, a non-profit organization that promotes peaceful change in the Middle East through the power of shared stories. “Change the story, change the world!”

New Stories Leadership brings five Israeli and five Palestinian students to Washington D.C. each summer for 7 weeks of intense personal discovery.

Students live, learn, and work side-by-side, sharing their stories, visions, and hopes for the future.
