Songs Across WALLS Of Separation
أغـــانـي عـبـــر جــدران الــفـصـــل


Index & Note :
Cultures have built walls around themselves for centuries, trying (futilely) to protect them selves from 'contamination.' This recording project seeks to expose the emotional dimension around what building of walls do to individuals in a growing number of countries, presenting artists from Palestine, Morocco, Syria, Kashmir, Cyprus and Mexico performing together with American and European artists presenting their interpretations in English of the original songs. Artists include Rim Banna (Palestine), Mahmoud Gania (Morocco), Abdul Rashid Farash (Kashmir), Esmaeel Mdah (Syria), Michael Tterlikkas (Cyprus), Natacha Atlas (UK/Egypt), Tom Russell (USA), Mimi Goese (USA), Sarah Jane Morris (UK), Eva Dahlgren (Sweden) and Morten Harket (Norway). Produced by Erik Hillstad (Lullabies form the Axis of Evil) with musical direction by Knut Reiersud.
More info :
.. Walls dividing people are growing in the present world ;
. The wall in Palestine have divided not only Jews from Palestinians, but even more Palestinians from Palestinians.
. The wall in Cyprus expresses the wound between the Islamic and the Christian world in Europe.
. The wall in Kashmir is a frozen war between two nuclear powers and divides one of the most beautiful gardens on the planet.
. The wall between USA and Mexico divides the Mexican culture and population.
. The walls around Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish enclaves in Morocco expresses the fortification Europe in our time strengthen in order to limit the flow of immigrants from the poorer countries.
.. Most of the walls that are being decided built by people in power are built and maintained in order to fortify a rich world against a poorer.
This project wants to expose the emotional dimension around what building of walls do to individuals in a growing number of countries.
