The Afro-Semitic Experience is an American jazz and world music group that combines elements of African American gospel and Jewish liturgical music. The group was formed in 1998 by Warren Byrd and David Chevan, and has performed in a variety of venues, including synagogues, churches, and music festivals. The group's goal is to promote understanding and appreciation of different cultures through music and to bring people of different backgrounds together.

The Afro-Semitic Experience's music is a unique blend of traditional Jewish liturgical music and African American gospel music. The group's performances often feature a mix of original compositions, traditional Jewish prayers, and African American spirituals. The group's members come from diverse backgrounds, including African American, Jewish, and Latino, which adds to the cultural richness of their music.

The Afro-Semitic Experience's music is not only an expression of cultural diversity but also of unity and common humanity. The group's music is a powerful reminder that despite our differences, we all share a common humanity and that by coming together through music, we can create a more harmonious and inclusive society. The group has released several albums and has toured extensively in the US and internationally, spreading their message of unity and cultural understanding through their music.
