More about this show

There are some voices that define a country's music. There are some movements that define a country's culture. Join Laura Marie Brown, Creative Producer of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival for an Arab Music Masterclass, a series exploring some of the artists, sounds, bands and scenes that define the Arab world.

This episode of Arab Music Masterclass travels to Palestine to explore hip hop and the voice of protest. From DAM to MC Abdul, Shadia Mansour and Julmud hear how hip hop and electronica are part of Palestine's cultural identity and how it makes its mark on the world stage. Liverpool Arab Arts Creative producer ties a thread between the country's national poet and spoken word through to the Arab lyricism of modern day Ramallah.
