Singer-songwriter David Broza is an icon in his native Israel.

His first song “Yihye Tov,” written more than 30 years ago during the Arab-Israel peace talks, became the anthem of the peace movement. He has toured all over the world and has recorded more than 30 albums since.

Broza’s new album “East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem” unites Israeli and Palestinian musicians, along with musicians Wyclef Jean and Steve Earle, to sing songs of peace and coexistence.

Broza joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss his new album and perform some songs in studio. Hear the full versions of those songs below:
