Multi-platinum Israeli singer-songwriter David Broza embarked on a mini North American tour this past weekend, with stops in San Francisco, Seattle and Chicago, among others. Considered one of the most dynamic and vibrant performers to come out of Israel since the late 1970’s, Broza has long been an international music superstar.

Having been raised in Israel, Spain and England, Broza has been known to utilize his ability to take on the troubadour tradition, featuring lyrics of the worlds’ greatest poets. His global accolades include a Spanish royal medal of honor, from the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, for his longtime contribution to Israel-Spain relations and his promotion of tolerance.

With musical inspiration from icons including Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Mercedes Sosa, Broza is eager to tour the US & Canada. “The great thing about performing out of Israel is the actual presentation of the show, songs, stories in front of audiences that have little, if any idea of where I’m coming from”, said Broza in a special interview with The Algemeiner, “I love taking the audience on a journey through my songs and have them give themselves in to the power of the performance”.
