They would often meet outside the synagogue or house of study. Following prayer or a study session, they would fill the gap between their religions and secular activity by creating a special kind of culture, integrativy in this spiritual guest their yearning for the Sechina (the divine presence) and for the return of Zion. These encounters in Spain, Egypt, Morocco, and Yemen were called Diwan. The rich culture of Diwan; composed of song and Piyut (sacred poetry and prose) is a legacy that has had a profound influence on the creative activity and the songwriting of the people of Israel until this day. Women and men, young and old, even children - all take part in the Diwan, singing and praying together. The Diwan Project is an ensemble that performs traditional music and song in a free, contemporary Israeli style, using original instruments from the Jewish Diaspora. As opposed to a concert where audience listens to the musicians and then applauds their performance, The Diwan Project begins and ends every prayer-song in silence. The journey, which lasts abot two hours, builds up with the audiences participation, sharing in song and in common intent. In essence, The Diwan Project i a community gathering drawing together people fro all cultures and traditions in a spirit of peace, respect and friendship. www.levgroupmedia.com/artists/ http://www.myspace.com/dewanhalev http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id==1161429358
