“Israeli Arab singer Mira Awad’s haunting Arabic rhythms combine seamlessly with Broza’s Spanish-influenced guitar playing, young Palestinian hip-hop artist Muhammad Mughrabi raps in English, ‘P-E-A-C-E, that’s the word I wanna be,’ Earle’s ‘Jerusalem’ becomes even more haunting after his having spent a week exploring the city.” –The Wrap
