Longing, Belonging and Palestine, Saturday 16th June at 7.30pm, Quaker Meeting House, Friargate, York, YO1 9RL
A story in music and song of Human – Earth relationships through the eyes of Palestinians living under Occupation.
A collaboration between members of Dar Al Musika Beit Sahour and Chai For All Bristol who perform with guest singer & bağlama player Zaid Hilal.
Fired up from their recent UK and Palestine tour of the Arts Council-funded ‘Longing Belonging and Balfour’ show Chai For All, a band that uniquely blends Jewish and Arabic music, now illuminate Palestinians’ experience of The Land. Researched in the Occupied Territories, their stories are accompanied by ravishing Palestinian music, visuals and dance. In the after-show discussion audiences will be invited to consider inspiring UK examples of human attachment to beloved natural locations defying vandal-developers.
Palestinian crafts and produce will be on display, and a recently returned EAPPI volunteeer will also be with us, to discuss her experiences working alongside Palestinians.
