TEDxJaffa - Debka Fantasia - You Are the Earth in the Heart of the Desert

Yisrael Borochov is the founding father of Israeli world music. His band, the East West Ensemble, has been instrumental in influencing an entire generation of contemporary ethnic music heard in Israel and abroad, and his performances have earned acclaim on stages from Japan to New York, and beyond. His latest project, Debka Fantasia, featuring Haya Samir, an Egyptian Muslim, fuses music from East and West to create an entirely new sound, rooted in classical musical traditions from the Middle East. Yisrael is interested in weaving the sounds of East and West together, believing that respect of another's music and art is an instrumental step in furthering inter-cultural dialogue and appreciation. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
