PrayerFormance Peace Concert

with Horacio Martinez

Gabriel Meyer Halevy is an incredible musician-activist whose transformative work has the power to heal. Prayerformance is an interactive concert that journeys from intimate prayer to ecstatic "danceable" joy, bridging hearts, peoples and cultures, songs, stories of cross-cultural connections, peacemaking and humor even beyond enemy lines. A cultural puzzle interconnecting through many languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu & Sanskrit. 

Described as “a hypnotizing, contagious and poetic experience,” Gabriel’s music brings World beat Fusion, sacred, heart songs, poetry and prayers from around the world, drawing from ancient Hebrew, Prophetic and Universal Wisdom, with folk and original songs that blend and celebrate earth, life, the mystical, and the Human Spirit. With Gabriel, the multi-talented musician Horacio Martinez will play guitar, charango, sikus, quena, kalimba, bombo and vocals.

In these tough times, when uncertainty, division and violence are prevalent and highlighted in our world, come replenish with joy and surprise reality to change with "Prayerformance," bridging hearts and cultures. 


A Benefit for Standing Together, the largest growing Palestinian-Jewish grassroots movement mobilizing together for peace, equality and justice in a shared future.
