Around 1,000 people who had never met before gathered to sing one song, in three languages and in three-part vocal harmony. 

Participants from three religions recently united to celebrate the historic visit to Israel by religious leader Sheikh Haji Yahya Cholil Staquf, head of Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization, the 60-million-member Nahdlatul Ulama group.

To mark the event, the Koolulam organization in Israel invited 1,000 people from different backgrounds who had never met before to a special event at the Tower of David in Jerusalem, to sing the Bob Marley classic “One Love” in three languages and in three-part vocal harmony.

Koolulam events unite people from all walks of life to perform a new rendition of a classic, using musical harmony to inspire harmony within Israeli society.
