About the event
Bint Mbareh (Arabic for: »yesterday’s daughter«) is a sound researcher with a curiosity about the superpowers of communal singing. Her initiation into music came through her research on rain-summoning practices in Palestine when doing research to combat the myth of water scarcity pushed by Israeli settler colonialism. Beyond summoning rain, she learned that the songs help people build a relationship with their environment and specificities of different times of year, and to communally determine how to share resources (and time) fairly. Such practices can still be evoked and actively used, rather than only remembered. She now studies death and rebirth as analogies for necessary upheavals, still looking for these significations in Palestinian landscape, especially the shrine of Nabi-Musa (AS), the prophet Moses. She was Cafe Oto’s Youth Music Resident in 2021. Bint Mbareh will also perform live on Saturday November 26, at 20:00. For more details please check www.TerritoryDisrupt.org
