Miri Ben-Ari from Ramat-Gan, Israel was recently named an Ambassador of Music for the United Nations - Brazil.  This, after winning a Grammy with Kanye West, performing with Jay-Z, Akon, and Alicia Keys, and even playing at the White House as part of Michelle Obama's Women's History Month series.  Check out her recent practice session with DJ Total Eclipse to see some wicked fast playing and this show with D-Stroy. Mr. Shieh is also a fan of her advocacy work around civil rights, which can be seen in her "Symphony of Brotherhood" using clips from Martin Luther King.
