Music That Changes Lives
The Shalva Band is comprised of eight talented musicians with disabilities who perform to the highest musical standards. Inspiring crowds throughout Israel and around the world with its musical repertoire and charm, the band is one of Shalva’s most celebrated inclusion programs. The Shalva Band is regularly invited to perform at cultural venues, dignitary events, with celebrity artists and is at the forefront of popular music forums. They perform at schools, Shalva dinners and various community events all over Israel as well as in the US, Canada, UK, Mexico and Russia.
The band takes listeners on a cultural journey using music as a language to unite people of all countries and abilities. The concert is an opportunity to experience inclusion of people with disabilities in a positive and inspiring way; to think differently about challenges, achievement, bravery, and acceptance; to appreciate the greatness made possible through motivation, hard work and the human spirit; and to discover a world where people are first and foremost people, united by our humanity rather than separated by our differences. It’s a path to discovery of creativity and the potential to make the world a better place through inclusion and accessibility.
