Join us on Sunday 30 May for an evening of music, poetry and discussions celebrating both Eastern and Western culture, in support of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music (ESNCM) in Palestine.
British composer, concert guitarist and ukulele virtuoso, Richard Durrant is looking forward to being involved in this special Converging Cultures event next Sunday.
‘After a year of being locked away it’ll be refreshing to take part in an event designed to highlight a wider perspective. There is beauty and there are harsh realities out there stretching way beyond Covid and sometimes only the arts will make us stop and think.
“With this in mind the Converging Cultures – PalMusic UK Virtual Concert Series has been organised. I’m so pleased to be part of this evening of music, poetry and discussion celebrating both Eastern and Western culture, in support of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music.‘Says Richard
Richard will be joined by performance poet and human rights activist Rafeef Ziadah. Rafeef has appeared in major venues across several countries, with powerful readings on war, exile, gender and racism. She has also released three albums, with her performance of poems such as ‘We Teach Life, Sir’ and ’Shades of Anger’ going viral within days of their release.
This concert is produced by PalMusic UK,committed to improving the lives of young Palestinians through music.
