For the first time ever, fans of the popular Israeli musician David Broza can participate in the creative process behind his work. For about the price of a shawarma sandwich, participants can log onto Kickstarter.com to get a sneak-peek into his first self-written Hebrew album.

Upon giving donations, participants are also invited to contribute their opinions to album artwork, the order in which the songs will be listed, and other aspects of the creative process.

"The internet allows us to create an interactive, enduring experience of music from its creation," Broza writes on Kickstarter.

"For many years, I wrote music, played, sang and recorded to the beautiful words of many well-known poets from around the world," Broza writes.

"Now, Im delighted to share my personal writings with you in this new project, whose success will depend on you - my fans, friends and supporters."

Fans pledging $75 or more are granted access to footage of the recording process, pre-screen audio track streams, and a pre-release copy of the CD. Those pledging $100 may also participate in a personal Skype chat with Broza himself.

Broza aims to raise $63,000 before February 14 to fund production costs. In the first three days of his campaign, he has already raised over $10,000.

Born in Haifa, Broza is best-known for his flamenco-tinged, folk-rock melodies fusing English, Israeli, and Spanish sounds with lyrics from well-known poets.

The multi-platinum artist has also been recognized internationally for his contributions to humanitarian causes, particularly the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He recently toured with Palestinian music group Sabreen and Jordanian musician Hani Naser to promote peace through music.

In 2009, Broza received a royal medal of honor from the King of Spain for his longtime contribution to Israeli-Spain relations and his promotion of tolerance.
