Sacred Music Festival Set to Give Jerusalem a Divine Buzz

Among the musicians will be Amadou and Mariam from Mali and legendary Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, on his first visit to Israel.

Jerusalem, with its biblical roots and crazy quilt of religions, might be an old-hand when it comes to the sacred, but the line-up for the second Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival this week (August 20-23) is likely to teach the holy city a thing or two.
