Dave Lippman has recorded 14 albums including this one, constantly touring all over the world, inspiring activists and counter-cultural types everywhere he goes. I highly recommend checking out the CDs on his website, and you’d do well to attend a concert if you ever get the chance to catch his remarkable act live!

A SONG CYCLE WITH VISUALS
ON PALESTINE AND ISRAEL
Dave Lippman’s 2004 visit to Palestine and Israel resulted in a multimedia piece, “Star of Goliath,” which encapsulates modern Holy Land history and imperial machinations, with attention to varying Jewish views on Israel and the struggle for Palestinian survival and sovereignty. Songs, slides and sounds to open hearts and minds.
