We were contacted by 4bar Collective which is a not for profit group that provides a worldwide platform for creative minds to collaborate and create art. Dan Blackwell, the founder, travels the world recording musicians.
The result is a collaboration to promote peace, art and talent across the globe. Dan got in touch a while back and we were discussing his work and potential to collaborate. He had just got back from Afghanistan where he filmed a documentary around the countries first ever female orchestra ‘Zohra’ whose members risk so much in their pursuit of music and equality. The film was superbly put together, thought-provoking & moving.
The Joe Strummer Foundation is thrilled to be able to fund the next documentary which will be a collaboration between Hebrew and Arabic musicians in Israel. They will create an original piece of collaborative music as a symbol of unity and peace.
‘It is my mission with 4bar Collective to bring positivity and light into the world through music. I am extremely honoured and excited to have the support of the Joe Strummer Foundation on this upcoming project in Jerusalem collaborating Arabic and Hebrew musicians! It couldn’t be a more perfect collaboration!’ – Dan Blackwell, Founder 4bar Collective
