Koolulam Music Project: One Love


The Koolulam music project is a fabulous initiative that breaks down the barriers between the different sectors of Israeli society. The project brings together people from diverse backgrounds with an invite to explore our shared aspirations for peace, joy and communion.

Within Israel there are many communities all vying to make an impact.  Along with various Jewish religious groups, with their divisions and sub divisions, there are of course
secular groups and of course large Muslim, Christian and Druze populations, and so on all the way down to much smaller minority groups like the Baha’i.
 
One would perhaps think that with this great assortment of peoples, comes much division, as is portrayed by the media, but the truth is quite the opposite.  Most Israelis, of all persuasions, feel very much unified.
 
Koolulam is a musical and social venture aimed at bringing together people from all corners of this diverse, multi-cultural Israeli society.  The idea behind Koolulam is to stop everything for a few hours and just sing – together. 
 
The project enables its participants to enjoy the feeling of togetherness through a deep communal experience.  With sounds and voices coming together to create a social choir, full of hope and optimism.

On June 14th, 2018, in honor of the historical visit to Israel by Indonesia’s religious leader Sheikh Haji Yahya Cholil Staquf, Koolulam invited 1000 people who had never met before to a special event at the Tower of David in Jerusalem, to sing one song, in three languages and in three-part vocal harmony. The event was produced in conjunction with the Tower of David museum and Jerusalem.Com. 


Here is a great article describing the experience of those who gathered for the event.



Lyrics:

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks
There is one question I’d really love to ask
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own belief

One Love
One Heart
Let’s get together and feel…

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks
There is one question I’d really love to ask
Where shall we go, what will be our fate
If we’re not able to show love today.

One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel…
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel alright
Alright, alright (One love, one love)
Let’s get together and feel
Alright, alright (One love, one love)
Let’s get together and feel
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel…
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel alright
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel…
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel alright ….
