Poetic dream pop and jazz meet Middle Eastern soul.
MARSM presents: A riveting combination of poetic dream pop, jazz and Middle Eastern soul, Palestinian singer and musician Ruba Shamshoum has formed a truly unique harmony. Her lyrics tell riveting stories of femininity, vulnerability, and celebrate human connection to nature and one’s self. For this spring date, Ruba will perform tracks from her new album, Risha.
This event is part of Grand Junction’s ‘Comfort & Courage’ online streaming season. Bringing the stage to the comfort of your living room, Comfort and Courage is a season of music, poetry and discussion performed live from the neo-gothic St Mary Magdalene’s church – and live streamed for online audiences. As the pandemic shines a spotlight on injustices and the effect on our mental health, in Comfort and Courage, artists and political voices explore how they balance emotional well-being with creative expression, and share what gives them comfort, and the courage to speak out.
Streamed live at 7.30pm BST on Sat 20 March, or watch on-demand for a further 14 days, for the price of £8.
