Aaron Goldberg, who became a Bar Mitzvah at Temple Israel, is now considered one of the world’s top jazz pianists. Several years ago Aaron met Ali Amr, a 25 year old qanun player and vocalist from Ramallah, who combines an eminent background in traditional Arabic music with the jazz education that he received at Berklee College of Music. Aaron and Ali have performed together in recent years constructing musical and cultural bridges, as well as considering the politics of the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Their unique duet entwines the sound-worlds of their respective instruments and improvisational traditions.
