Ukuleles For Peace

Mentioned in the "Mighty Uke" story, and worth spotlighting, is the Arab/Israeli group, Ukuleles for Peace:
"The goal of Ukuleles for Peace is to bring Jewish and Arab children together to play in an orchestra with ukuleles, kazoos and other fun instruments. Paul works with the students once a week in their own schools, and then brings them together for performances. The children sing in Hebrew, Arabic and English. The hope is that playing together will create further opportunities for communal activities, and that parents and members of the communities will get involved in the program."
What the world needs now, is ukes, sweet ukes. What a truly amazing project. Link
