BWV first presented Dobbs on tour in Palestine in 2005. Hosted by the Al
Kamandjati Center, which provides music lessons as an alternative to violence,
Dobbs performs for schools and refugee camps throughout the West Bank
inspiring children. In a place where people are afraid to gather for fear of death
threats, Dobbs’ public concerts have inspired hundreds to gather in Palestine to
hear the Al Kamandjati musicians perform. Dobbs’ performances have also
touched the participants of the Circus Behind the Wall, the Freedom Theater and
the Computer Clubhouse.
