Internationally acclaimed singer, musician and broadcaster Reem Kelani is recognised as one of the most enthralling and innovative performers of Palestinian and Arabic music.
In “Palestine in Song”, Reem will take us on a journey through the history and music of her homeland, and beyond.
Accompanied by masterful UK-based musicians: Bruno Heinen on piano, Ryan Trebilcock on double bass and Riccardo Chiaberta on percussion.
“Rarely has the entire tragedy of a people been condensed into artful melodrama by such a powerful and stirring voice.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
“Kelani is more than a musician: she’s a teacher, a scholar and a broadcaster. She is also a force of nature, reminiscent in some ways of the Argentinian great Mercedes Sosa.” The Australian
Produced by Arts Canteen in association with The Miktab Limited.
