David Broza, Israeli Superstar, to Perform at the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts On Thursday, November 21 at 7:30pm at 3506 Gwynbrook Ave, Owings Mills, MD. Broza is performing in Memory of Pete Winer, his former sound technician who lost his life in a tragic motorcycle accident.
With more than 25 albums to his name, many of which have become multi-platinum, David Broza has been a star in Israel since he was 21. His multi-cultural, multi-lingual, and award winning flamenco and modern, fingerpicking guitar style has won him global attention. On his latest release, “All or Nothing,” Broza sings poetic rhythms in three languages
A steadfast humanitarian, Broza has worked to spread a message of peace through his music; since 1977, he has devoted substantial attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Songs such as the hit “Yihye Tov” and “Belibi”—a collaboration with the Palestinian music group Sabreen— has earned him accolades from several peace-keeping organizations. His dedication to promoting Israeli-Spanish relations and worldwide tolerance earned Broza a Spanish royal medal of honor from King Juan Carlos I in 2009.
The album Night Dawn: The Unpublished Poetry of Townes Van Zandt (2010) and Third Language (2011) have captured worldwide critical acclaim for fresh lyrics and expert instrumentals. Night Dawn sets Van Zandt’s poetry to original music by Broza, while Third Language was produced completely on the Internet—an unprecedented creative innovation in the music industry.
Pete Winer was Broza’s sound engineer for 13 years. Broza says, "As you can imagine, spending so much time together on the road, you become as close as you can be, like family.”
In June of 2012, Winer was thrown from a motorcycle while riding in Pennsylvania. His death left a hole in the heart of his sister, JCC Vice President Gail Zuskin, as well Broza. “I never thought his life would end so abruptly, it is so sad,” says the musician.
As a tribute, Broza is playing the concert at the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts in memory of Pete Winer.
