David Broza makes his third appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va.

Born in Israel and raised in England and Spain, singer, songwriter and guitarist Broza's long career has encompassed styles originating in each of those three countries. His guitar playing ranges from flamenco-flavored rhythmic techniques to nimble finger-picking and rock 'n' roll. A true citizen of the world, Broza is also known for his commitment to multiple humanitarian causes, especially the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His song "Yihye Tov" (Things will be Better) has become an anthem of the peace process, and he was awarded a Spanish royal medal of honor by King Juan Carlos I for his longtime promotion of tolerance.

In 2010, Broza set poems by the late Townes Van Zandt to music on the CD Night Dawn: The Unpublished Poetry of Townes Van Zandt and performed some of the songs on our show the following year. He returns to the Mountain Stage backed by his own band for a set that includes original songs and a reworking of Pink Floyd's "Mother."
