In November 2015, Musicians without Borders organized a rap workshop leader training for Palestinian rappers. After an incredible training week with Dutch rappers and spoken word artists Manu and Guus (Kern Koppen), the five Palestinian rappers Abed, Mohammad A., Nadim, Mohammad G. and Ahmad organized several series of rap workshops for children in their communities.
Watch the video clip Soud Homaidi made of the song written by blind children from al-Shurouq School. The song is recorded in our music studio in Dheisheh refugee camp and is the result of a series of ten rap workshops given by Musicians without Borders’ rap workshop leaders.
In November and December, four grades from the Ephpheta Paul VI Institute received a series of ten rap music workshops from Musicians without Borders rap workshop leaders Mohammad, Soud and Hisham. The kids are deaf, but that didn’t keep them from making music, rapping and writing words for their own songs!
Halimeh Sarabtah is deaf, but that didn’t stop her from realizing her dream and study special education, so she can help children with special needs, blind and deaf. And now, also with music. Halimeh followed the Music Workshop Leadership training of Musicians without Borders and Holy Land Trust in Palestine which allowed her to incorporate music into her work.
