Palestinian Music in Exile is a historical and contemporary study of Palestinian musicianship in exile in the Middle East, spanning half a century in disparate locations including Gaza, Turkey, Kuwait, and Egypt. Grassroots musicians emerge here as powerful actors, their stories taking center stage, offering critiques of existing conditions, new perspectives on displacement and the transmission of Palestinian narratives, and presenting alternative visions for the future.
Palestinian Music in Exile will be released globally on 21 November 2023. You can purchase your copy of this book from major bookstores and online book retailers worldwide.
