When there is good news from a troubled land -and singing breaks down barriers








Koolulam: singing to  challenge the status quo.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They met in a warehouse at the port of Haifa in Israel.

They learned the music and rehearsed it for just one hour.

And then they sang  -  Christians, Jews, Muslims - they sang together.  

They sang in Arabic, English, and Hebrew,  - they sang together.  

Oh yes, music can be so utterly subversive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THEY ARE KOOLULAM

They sang in Haifa.

Here is what they sang.  Let your knees tremble, your eyes get teary, and your heart be filled with hope.
