Songs of Peace - Sagit Zilberman

Dance to, sing along with, and experience traditional music from cultures across the world! International jazz multi-instrumentalist and composer Sagit Zilberman performs and facilitates “Songs of Peace,” an interactive global music workshop for families and children. This workshop introduces children to instruments such as the didgeridoo, space drum, and other percussion instruments and empowers them to use both their own voices and instruments to play and create music with others. - Sagit Zilberman
