What Would Peace Sound Like?

Here’s a clip of my favorite Israeli songwriter (one of my favorites in general for that matter) Ehud Banai performing with two legendary Palestinian musicians, George Samaan and Salem Darwishe, on the shores of the Galilee.  The song is called Nitzotz Ahava or Spark of Love.  It contains the lyric “What for me is peace, for you is war” followed by “The place you are going to, there I will also reach.”

What would peace here sound like?  A lot like this.  Pretty damn good I think.  Enjoy.
