Between us, among you.
Join renowned Palestinian singer, composer and oud player Kamilya Jubran with students and professional artists from the Guildhall School for an evening of new music, spoken word and cross-arts performance.
Byana Baynacom translates as 'between us, among you' and plays on a common Arabic phrase that suggests speaking frankly and openly. The performances explores ideas of choice, identity, language and political context. How do we relate to others? What do we need to grow and evolve? What do we need to survive and what do we need to be free?
