UC Berkeley students are proud to present the My Favorite Enemy: Voices for Change Concert on February 10th at 7:30PM in Wheeler Auditorium!

MFE Will join us in Berkeley, after having been invited to perform for world leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast in DC. The group began working together in 2009 as part of a broader endeavor called Middle East Program, MEP. MEP was founded in 2002 with the mission to build meaningful, long-term relationships between leaders from all sectors of society. My Favorite Enemy bridges the traditional musical influences of the Middle East with contemporary pop and rock songwriting and production to create something truly unique and inspiring. With lyrics in Arabic, Hebrew and English, the group offers tangible proof that music truly is the world's universal language. We invite you to join us for a night of music and inspiration, emphasizing the potential for all of us to bridge communities and affect change in the world.
