Palestine-Israel

Sami Yaffa travels to the Holy Land. Conflicting traditions in the middle of conflicts and social resonant enthusiasts call musnanad. Salaam Shalom.

The episode kicks off with Oy Division, an ensemble that plays a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe called klezmer. He also meets with Kids Insane, a punk band in Tel Aviv, and Kutiman, whom he calls "a psychadelic multimedia renaissance man" who leads the YouTube show "Thru You." Palestinian rapper Muhammad Mughrabi talks about the beautiful lawlessness of life in Shuafat refugee camp and composer Said Murad discusses the world of artists based in East Jerusalem. The show also features ethereal singer Victoria Hanna and Balkan Beat Box, a band that started in New York City before they all moved back to their home country of Israel.
