In the first of an online concert series PalMusic UK will be featuring the work of three Arab musicians who have personally chosen pieces for the event:
Kinan Azmeh: Clarinet player who has chosen 'Suite for improvisor and orchestra’
Dima Bawab: Soprano who has chosen Joseph Canteloube's - ‘Baïlero’, Chants de Bergers d’Auvergne
Salma Abassi: Oud player and teacher at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music who has chosen Mohammad Abdel Wahab's, ‘Step of my Darling’ خطوة حبيبي - محمد عبد الوهاب
Our musicians will be joined by Sir Vincent Fean, former British Consul General to Jerusalem and Director of the Balfour Project, who will explore how music has managed to transcend the impact of COVID-19 and occupation, helping preserve Palestinian cultural identity and community.
Please note that whilst all panelists will be present for the event and will be interviewed live, their musical performances will be prerecorded.
