The Jerusalem Prayer Project's documentary Warriors of the Heart tells stories of grassroots peacemakers in the Holy Land building alternative pathways to peace, outside the mainstream politics of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
The ‘Peace Portal’ is an interactive multi-media platform designed for artists, dancers, photographers, musicians, poets and activists from around the world to help them articulate the virtues of peace over war, non-violence over conflict, and love over cynicism through video submissions of their work.
Jerusalem Prayer, currently in development, will be crafted to be a musical and visual depiction of harmony between the three Abrahamic faiths and a celebration of the rich diversity of this ancient city. Featuring local artists, dancers and every day people – the ‘Short’ is intended to set the tone and reinforce the broader peace building vision for JPP and will be submitted to festivals and integrated into our promotional and outreach presentations. Music for the both the ‘short’ and extended documentary has been produced, written, performed and recorded by Stephen Longfellow Fiske.
“Flow” is based around Stephen’s melodic acoustic guitar style. “Jerusalem Prayer” is the lead cut of eight primarily instrument musical pieces on “Flow.” The nine minute melodic “Jerusalem Prayer” features Stephen on acoustic guitar and includes guest musicians Yuval Ron (oud), Evan Gavriel Fiske (percussion), Richard Hardy (flute), Jeff Breeh (bass), and Barry Fasman (string arrangements and keyboards). The singers include Stefani Valadez, Mitra Rahbar and Stephen. The CD includes seven other orchestrated instrumentals plus the concluding acapella vocal, Peace of Prayer, featuring Stephen and vocalist Crystal Davis. Additional guest artists on the CD include master guitarist, Zavier, violinist Scarlet Rivera, percussionist, Oliver Brown, tabla player, Greg Johnson and floor drum player, Dennis Knicely.
“Flow weaves its spell from the very first haunting notes of Jerusalem Prayer. This impressive collection of original orchestrated songs from Stephen Longfellow Fiske showcases his innovative compositions and artful musicianship. Enhanced by a circle of other very talented musicians and performers,Flow evokes deep emotions, culminating in the beautiful Peace of Prayer, which caps off a sublime, moving, and enjoyable listening experience.”
