    David Broza, after participating in a candle lighting for the eighth night of Hanukah on the top of Masada and performing for an intimate audience, had one of his signature Spanish guitar\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s placed in the Masada Museum. Set amidst the 2000 year old vessels, this honor was bestowed upon him given the uniqueness and importance of his annual concerts on the top of this sacred mountain. Masada, known for the siege by the Roman Empire and mass suicide of the Jewish rebels, Broza has a special relationship with the location overlooking the Dead Sea. Just recently, PBS broadcast his recent concert featuring guests Jackson Browne and Shawn Colvin which was seen by over 1 million viewers in the United States and just now being broadcast worldwide. Known as the Springsteen in Israel, his guitar is the only musical instrument in the museum.

Featured Artists

  • Trio C tot de derde
  • The Dutch music group Trio C tot de derde consists of the three young musicians Carel den Hertog (violin), Coos Lettink (accordeon) and Caspar Terra (clarinet).

Since the boy’s enjoy improvisation so much, no musical piece ever sounds twice the same.

The music they play expresses euphoric happiness, as well as intense sadness, which means music for dancing, but also for dreaming.
