London, England

An evening in celebration of Palestinian Music and Culture, featuring acclaimed Palestinian singer and oud player,
Marwan Abado with Peter Rosmanith; and the 'ambassador for Arab music in the West', Adel Salameh with Naziha Azzouz.

The evening will be a celebration of Palestinian music and culture, bringing this truly beautiful heritage to supporters and lovers of world music and the Middle East.

Marwan Abado and Peter Rosmanith dedicate themselves to the merger of melodic oriental rhythm and Arabian poetry with European influences. They bring to life sound dimensions at the edge of Eastern and Western music at the border between tradition and modernism. Marwan Abados lyric voice and his narrative, Arabic oud meets Peter Rosmanith's open, empathetic percussion.

All proceeds will go to support a grassroots Palestinian charity, MEND (Middle East Nonviolence and Democracy), to help fund their network of dedicated non-violence centres in the West Bank and Gaza. MEND's pioneering educational and participatory workshops show children and youths that there can be a peaceful future, that there are better life prospects than those which they currently experience, and that people can co-exist.
