Ukeleles for Peace: Music Bringing Israeli and Arab Youth Together

The sweet strumming of the ukulele invokes a feeling of island bliss. But one minute of listening to The United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra will make you realize this isn’t flip-flops music. Punk rock, rock and roll, pop music and oldies – you name it, this octet will play it on their ukuleles. Peter Moss and all the musicians of the United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra are delighted to be supporters of the children’s project in Israel “Ukeleles for Peace,” which was founded and realized by the music lecturer Paul Moore several years ago together with both Israeli and Palestinian children. A part of the wages of the orchestra will be donated every evening to this award winning reconciliation project, in which kids with the help of music and inexpensive musical instruments discover, together with parents and schools, a way forward throughout this war-torn region.
