Sacred city

From my Times review [£] of Jerusalem’s Sacred Music Festival:

Can art trump politics in such a divided city? Last year’s Sacred Music Festival began just days after the end of the Israeli incursion into Gaza, an operation that caused the cancellation of much of Jerusalem’s annual Season of Culture.

This year there was a chance to indulge in vaguely optimistic musings about bringing Jews and Muslims together as Shye Ben Tzur — a charismatic young musician and poet who has long been immersed in the Indian classical tradition — joined forces with Sufi performers from the sub-continent in the Tower of David, the ancient citadel looming over the Old City.
