October 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Limited spaces, free entrance but booking a ticket is required
SPACE and Det er hærdt å være araber welcome you to this musical evening at Melahuset. There will be music, poetry, conversation and open-mic at the end.
When musicians are forced to leave their homes, how can they adapt to a new context and audience, and an alien musical scene? How can they perform in front of an audience that is not theirs? What happens to the content and style of their music? We will discuss these questions with Sallam Nasser and Shbli Saleem, after we hear some of their beautiful performances. Discussion moderated by Chiara Ayad.
- Sallam Nasser: is a lyricist, rapper and producer. Originally from Haifa, Palestine, Sallam Naser was born and raised in the Yarmouk camp in Damascus. With the unrest in Syria, he sought asylum in Drammen, Norway, where he quickly mastered the Norwegian language. In 2019, Sallam caught the rap scene off guard when he started participating in rap battles against Norwegian rappers, proving his talent was not limited to his native language.
- Shbli Saleem: is an Oud player, he performed in numerous concerts and festivals in Norway. He currently studies music at Høgskolen i Innlandet
- Moderator, Chiara Ayyad: Palestinian-Norwegian artist
