Heartbeat: an Israeli-Palestinian Youth Music Group with a Mission

From Huffington Post: 

Palestinian and Israeli youth making happy, hopeful music together? When pigs fly!

Seriously though. “Bukra Fi Mishmish” (When Pigs Fly) is a song by Palestinian And Israeli youth promoting peace and co-existence. With lyrics like, “Tomorrow will be better” and “Try to create and believe, yes YOU can,” the song is an anthem of optimism in an often dreary landscape.

The video was created by Heartbeat, an organization that provides opportunities and spaces for young Israeli and Palestinian musicians to work together, hear each other and amplify their voices to influence the world around them. Through a number of programs — the Heartbeat All-Star Band, Mic is Stronger Tour, Hip HOpera – Borderline Remix, and camps and retreats — the Jerusalem-based group is positively empowering the next generation of Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
