One Night In Jordan: A Concert For Peace Giveaway

Zade, the young Jordanian composer and pianist building bridges of peace through music, has wowed audiences with his US public television debut earlier this month. Now the epic concert, One Night In Jordan: A Concert for Peace is available on CD and DVD.

The monumental concert television event filmed in HD, was one of the biggest concerts ever staged in Jordan joining over 100 musicians from 40 nations to present “a message of peace to the world.” Set at one of the world’s largest remaining Roman Amphitheatres, Zade’s epic cinematic music blending East and West draws inspiration from the anthems of the great film composers, his homeland’s natural beauty and the efforts of His Majesty the late King Hussein of Jordan to make peace in the Middle East.

Named by the Washington Post as a “gorgeous pianist/composer/hunk,” and recognized by The Washington Times as “Jordan’s leading Cultural Ambassador (who) dedicates his music to building bridges of peace and tolerance,” the young Jordanian composer and pianist ZADE makes his public television debut joined by over one hundred musicians from 40 nations to present “a message of peace to the world” in ZADE – ONE NIGHT IN JORDAN: A Concert for Peace airing as a public television special in 2010. The CD and the DVD of the concert was released in the US on March 9th. It will be followed by an international concert tour by ZADE commencing in the summer of 2010.

The composer’s epic cinematic music blending East and West draws inspiration from the anthems of the great film composers, his homeland’s natural beauty and the efforts of His Majesty the late King Hussein of Jordan to make peace in the Middle East. Recently, ZADE and some of the world’s finest musicians – including London’s renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Voices Choir, virtuoso violinists Karen Briggs (Soul II Soul, Yanni, Wynton Marsalis) and Grammy winner Charlie Bisharat (Elton John, Black-Eyed Peas), Ramon Stagnaro on Spanish guitar (Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Shakira) and world music woodwind maestro Pedro Eustache (Paul McCartney and Don Henley) traveled to Jordan to present an uplifting and majestic musical journey of ZADE’S compositions at one of the world’s largest remaining Roman Amphitheatres, built nearly 2,000 years ago.

Following the live concert, ZADE was flooded with emails from Jordanian fans urging him to “tell the world that we want peace,” while thanking him for “giving us back the hope we have sometimes lost.”
