there is something about music and it depending on the style that you're doing but for me when i when i'm playing and performing especially if you get taken into a world where you know you're you're thinking about your music only you know you're not thinking about what's happening back home and you're dealing with issues that are difficult at home or in your family or your friends or anything like that you're in you're in the moment of the music and it's kind of a respite from from the daily grind of life so i really look forward to the concerts especially because you get a you get a break from from reality really you're just in this world of music and it's refreshing to be doing that and not thinking about everything else that you're going to be thinking about once it's over.

3:42 pm
as a child and. he feels he has been living in exile his whole life but every day dreaming of palestine every day has his heart is in palestine so i feel that this poem really speaks beautifully about this experience of exile as the palestinian. leak. proof. was.

when you perform back home it's a it's a different situation you're poor you're auditioning and you're performing with people and you're trying to do your best and it's all about the play here that's why it's a much deeper level you're. mixing with people from your background and getting to hear the language and have the food and see the sights and it really is such a different experience doing it for something like this than it is say a job back home it is a dream for me i have never had the opportunity to come to palestine and until tim . mohamed foggo contacted me i really didn't know when i would ever have that opportunity so it was really a great chance to come out and meet people of my heritage and play music with them and it's a it's a very nonpolitical situation so it's really nice because we're here just to spread the word of palestinian culture the good the good side of the culture.

with the palestine national orchestra it's quite different because it brings together to. two of my passions my identity as a palestinian and also my identity as as a musician and it's an extremely special experience because the orchestra is made up of musicians professional palestinian positions who live all around the world and work professionally and they we gather for the sake of this orchestra and all of us feel this sense of very strong identity as a palestinian and we have something very very specific and very passionate and important to communicate to the world and this makes the experience unlike
