NEW YORK - The Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations released a video on Saturday titled “United Pianos” in which 11 pianists are seen playing to the same tune in different countries around the world.

“Music is a global language, it has the power to unite us together, by bridging cultural and political gaps,” Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon said. “This project was created with hope to reach the day when music will replace the sound of wars and disagreements.”
