Liyana – the Band
Liyana, the musical sextet from Zimbabwe ranging in age from 17-23, are extraordinary not only because of their remarkable talent, but also due to the fact that each member was born with severe physical disabilities. The Afro-fusion group makes its first visit to the United States in January, 2009, performing at NAMM and Macworld on the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus stage, visiting Los Angeles to work with celebrated artists and producers, and then traveling to the New York Region for additional performances at the New Jersey Performing Arts center, the Roxbury Arts Center, Columbia University and Congregation Rodeph Sholom ,the only one with the amazing Israeli performer David Broza!

David Broza
Talented singer/songwriter David Broza was born in Israel and raised in England and Spain. Son of a businessman and a folksinger, the artist was influenced at a very young age, reaching the stage when he was a teenager. At the age of 21, Broza was climbing local charts with his own compositions, recording his debut album in 1978. David Broza's first English release came out in 1989. That album, produced by Steve Miller, was called Away From Home. In 1995, while promoting Stonedoors, the singer had the opportunity to open for Sting, even playing a song along with him. In 1996, Broza returned to his roots, recording a Hebrew album called Big Secrets in Tel-Aviv.
