The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (inspired by a book of poems by Goethe) is a project conceived by musician Daniel Barenboim and philosopher Edward Said in 1999 based in Sevilla (Spain) to bring together, in a spirit of harmony, young Palestinian, Arab and Israeli musical talents, as well as a forum for dialogue and reflection on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This project was born with the purpose of combining musical study and development with the sharing of knowledge and understanding between these two cultures.
