PANDAwomen festival opening: The trio with the Singer Amal Shehab, percussionist Lamis Sires and the oud player Wassim Mukdad presents works of Arabic female musicians of the 20th century from Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and other countries. The themes of love and loss, of home and exile are common throughout the Arabic repertoire and remain relevant to their reality today.
Tickets: 15 € online / 20 € doors / 5 € for social welfare recipients on the day of event.
PANDAwomen Festival explores the female side of today’s music scene, whether on stage or behind the scenes. Now in its sixth consecutive year, the festival provides a space for musical experimentation and collaboration. This year’s PANDAwomen is dedicated to women who have had to leave their homes and refuge. Women flee, escaping from war, hunger, political or religious persecution, forced marriages, and sexual violence. There is no hope that the situation will change for the better soon, but there’s hope that women who have found their new home may finally speak up without hiding their faces.
