Biography:
The disparate musicians of Common Chords have come together to tackle the most pressing issue of our time: the conflict and misunderstanding about and between the warring religions and cultures of the world. The artists who comprise Common Chords have each developed a following for the power and beauty of their music. Coming from different genres of music and world cultures and religions Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu - they have together created a musical collaboration that transports the listener, feeds the soul and unblocks the mind. Common Chords concerts are noted for their seamless and harmonious performances and the effortlessness of the musical and personal collaboration. The artists combine their virtuosity in different genres of music - rock, trance, klezmer, jazz, bhangra, Qwaali and Yiddish vocals - into one harmonious new hybrid that is distinct to Common Chords. In addition to their artistry, Jewish musician Yale Strom and Muslim musician Salman Ahmad are educators who have both received the prestigious honor of artist-in-residency chairs at San Diego State University and Queens College, respectively. They have designed a curriculum for Jewish, Muslim and public school students. The Common Chords program was created at Queens College, where it continues to be part of Queens College's "Bridging the Divide" programs.
