Trying out different sounds and movements with the sticks

Every three months, a new group of international musicians joins Music Harvest in Nablus. In this city, some surrounding villages and a couple of refugee camps, the volunteers give weekly music workshops. Since 2013, every new group of volunteers participates in the Musicians without Borders music workshop leadership training, given by Fabienne van Eck.

Playing the ‘forbidden rhythm game’


The newest group arrived in February and was joined by two music teachers from the program Sounds of Palestine. This resulted in a group of trainees from France, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany, Jordan, Nablus, Arub refugee camp and Beit Sahur… but we all spoke exactly the same language, which is the language of music!
