Mark Eliyahu plays to the tune of love, and hosts Rita, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Shai Tsabari, and Valerie Hamaty
DJ: Haim Laroz
On the eve of Tu B’Av, when the full moon rises and hearts open, we will raise a spotlight on the city, with an evening of international performances, bringing love to the heart of Jerusalem in the Ha’atsmaut Park. For this special show, we have gathered musicians who wear their hearts on their sleeves and on the stage: world-renowned, one-of-a-kind musician and singer, Mark Eliyahu will host Rita, one of the richest voices of Israeli music, the Sufi master from Turkey, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Omar Faruk Tekbilek, the man with the biggest soul in Asia, Shai Tsabari, and the heartbreaking singer and performer, Valerie Hamaty.
The compositions that will play out live on stage invite you to be drawn into an evening of fantasies, and take in the encounters, where the modern meets the ancient, the secular approaches the sacred, East faces West, and where the deepest emotions can turn into a celebration.
In collaboration with the Jerusalem Municipality and the Jerusalem Foundation
You want more, you say?
Then come to the after party!
Immediately after the main show in Gan Ha’azmaut, we’ll keep the dance of love going with electric, tribal celebrations that will keep you on your feet until the middle of the night!
It all takes place in the beloved Pergamon with the Jerusalem line WEUGE, bringing us music from (almost) every corner of the world.
