I have been working on a new art project: “Transit”, a music installation with Song Circus and a group of untrained voices by refugees and immigrants from nine different countries.
Text by Confucius and Mansur Rajih (Jemen/Norway). Guest soloist: Khaled Habeeb (oud).
In the first week of Desember we did eight performances in Rogaland, Western Norway. We have made new friends, and we have been moved by individuals´ strength and bravery. I have witnessed how people contribute to help the refugees who arrive the city, and I have met skepticism.
ومن ليس اصيلا يتهاوى
ستجرفه الريح بعيدا
عن مجرى الثورة
والوطن المتجدد دوما في التأصيل
طريقك يا وطني
هذا الدرب طويل
