Emirati artists joined together with Israel’s famous special band, the Shalva band, to celebrate peace. The result was absolute perfection.
The Shalva Band and Emirati Artists
The Shalva band has become popular in Israel after their appearance on a famous Israeli reality singing show. It is a band made up of people with disabilities, and their talent is unbeatable. So what happens when the Shalva band joins together with Emirate artists and the Jerusalem Symphony to celebrate normalization ties? Perfection. Beauty. Peace. It is amazing what can happen when people want to live peacefully.
And what better song is there to use for this unification than the famous Simon and Garfunkel song, Bridge Over Troubled Water.
The lyrics to this song are beautiful.
When you’re weary
When tears are in your eyes
I’ll dry them all I’m on your side
Oh, when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down (x2)
When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you I’ll take your part
Oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down (x2)
Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water I will ease your mind (x2).
