Musical Playgrounds in Husan and Za’atara
December 7, 2016   Palestine

During the last weeks we worked in the Palestinian villages Husan and Za’atara: together with 480 girls we sang, rapped, played body percussion and made music with flutes, guitar, darbuka and oud. Because of lack of space and classrooms, the girls from Za’atara finish school every day at 11.30, so a second group of children can go to school in the afternoon. We were grateful to work in these schools, and have lots of respect for the teachers, who have to cover the complete curriculum in such a short time. Thank you for letting us use some of that valuable lesson time to make music! Feedback from teachers of the schools we visit tells us that our activities motivate the children to go to school and to stay positive. #MusicConnects
