Montreal Jazz Festival

This is my far my favorite week of the year…Le Festival de Jazz International de Montreal. I’ve had two very spiritual moments so far. The first was listening to Eric Bibb a blues singer who sings songs like "Now is the Needed Time" and "Don’t Let Nobody Drag Yo’ Spririt Down".

The other was a group from Israel in their debut performance in Montreal. They are Sheva, a group made up of Jews, Muslims and Christians. Their music was incredible. Most of their songs are text from the Hebrew scriptures sung in Hebrew or Arabic. The following day I was invite to a Q&A session with them. This was fantastic to hear about what they are doing and the way they think on this whole middle eastern mess.
