Freemuse.org: Focus on artists from the Middle East

30 October 2006
Watch the new video interviews on www.freemuse.orgDuring the ‘Images of the Middle East’ festival in Denmark in August-September 2006, Freemuse recorded video interviews with…

Turkish-Kurdish folk singer  Sivan Perwer
Palestinian-Israeli singer Kamilya Jubran
Lebanese Death Metal band Oath to Vanquish
Lebanese-French rapper and composer Clotaire K

Also, the American author and historian Mark LeVine who attended a conference about freedom of speech during the festival had interesting comments to make about Heavy Metal and Islam and Globalisation in the Middle East

In Lebanon, we interviewed the censored 24-year-old producer of Dark Ambient, Xardas

The question of music prohibition in Islam receives renewed attention in Somalia and Pakistan. Watch this interview with the Pakistani musician who discussed the issue with clerics in Pakistan already in 2004, Salman Ahmad

Note
The interviews are recorded in a new film format – and we would very much like to hear your comments, also technically: how did you experience the video clips on your computer screen?
