In April, Duamuxa, a duo of Chilean musicians living in the U.S., went to Palestine to perform, collaborate with Palestinian musicians, and conduct musical workshops with children in refugee camps.
Duamuxa was invited to perform at the “Cultural Festival in Nablus” and nearby refugee camps. They conducted workshops at the Edward Said Music Conservatory, Habib Al Deek’s music school, and MECA’s partner organization Shoruq in Dheisheh Refugee Camp. The duo and the children recorded a song by Duamuxa for the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, inspired by the poetry of Latin America and Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.
Many thanks to Francine Kuipers for organizing the tour and to all those who raised and donated funds. Duamuxa hopes to go back next year for a longer visit.
