‹ Back to What's On Sounds of Palestine: Nai Barghouti | Mohamed Najem & Friends

27 Jul 2017

Moving seamlessly between Arabic music and jazz, two of the most exciting musicians to emerge from the cultural renaissance in Palestine take to the stage.

Nai Barghouti recently toured with the Palestine Youth Orchestra, selling out concert halls from Glasgow to London. She returns with her band of musicians from Palestine, Korea, Tunisia and Nigeria. 

She’s followed by favourites of the Paris jazz scene, Mohamed Najem & Friends. Featuring traditional Arabic instruments alongside standard jazz line-ups, both groups move effortlessly between the music of the Middle East and Jazz, to find a new musical language. 

All artists are donating part of their fee to the UNICEF efforts in Syria. For more information, please contact NiNi Productions: info@niniproductions.co.uk
