Israeli superstar David Broza performs at Brooklyn College

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College concludes its 2009-2010 World Stages series with Israeli singer/songwriter David Broza, March 21 at 2 p.m.

Since the mid-1970s, Broza has been steadily gaining international recognition as a world music performer. A superstar in his homeland of Israel, this multi-platinum selling artist’s unique style blends Middle Eastern pop and folk influences with flamenco and American country, rock and blues to create a true world music sound.

His songs — performed in English, Spanish, and Hebrew — feature lyrics borrowed from the world’s greatest poets, tying him closely to the tradition of the troubadours.

The son of an Israeli/British businessman and a folk singer, Broza was born in Haifa, Israel (where his grandfather founded an Arab-Israeli settlement) and was raised and educated in England and Spain.

The concert is at the Walt Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2900 Campus Road. Tickets are $25; visit www.brooklyncenteronline.org or call 718-951-4500.
