The Stories Behind the Songs
Performance and Encounter
A musical encounter with Beit System Ali artists: a unique collective of rappers, poets and musicians working together for over a decade. The collective’s artists will perform in five languages: Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, English and Yiddish.
Their musical works are inspired by countless sources from Fairouz to Egyptian poetry through scriptural texts and IDF bands. The stories interwoven between the songs shed light on the creative processes, personal life stories, hardships and inspiration that accompany bi-national shared artistic creation and activism. The performance concludes with an open conversation with the audience about cultural activism, and the question how to create social change through art.
