‘One Love’ Video Released from Koolulam Singdown at Tower of David


On June 14th, in honor of the historical visit to Israel by Indonesia’s religious leader Sheikh Haji Yahya Cholil Staquf, Koolulam invited 1000 people who had never met before to a special event at the Tower of David in Jerusalem, to sing one song, in three languages and in three-part vocal harmony. 

The event was produced in conjunction with the Tower of David museum and Jerusalem.Com.

The song was Bob Marley’s iconic “One Love,” in English, Arabic, and Hebrew.

We previously posted the Koolulam performance of Al Kol Eleh to celebrate Israel's 70th anniversary in April. 

The musical engine behind Koolulam is Ben Yefet, a gifted music educator and conductor. He creates arrangements for the songs, teaches them in about 45 minutes, and then conducts the humongous ad-hoc choirs for the recordings. As the events have grown in size, Yefet has been joined by co-conductors and musicians.

Koolulam was established with the goal of bringing together people from all walks of life by means of a collaborative musical creation. In each event, a new rendition of a well-known song is taught to participants and is immediately thereafter performed.

Enjoy!
