OTHER Arab Artists Collective

I sat in on a presentation by two members of OTHER Arab Artists Collective. It was awesome to see their installations and listen to music they had created specifically for their work. One song began with a traditional melody and ended with a recording of young girl in Sidon in the 1960s singing a song to her brother in Detroit. Tears.

Rola Nashif, one of the artists, has made a short film entitled Detroit Unleaded. Check out the trailer. And go to the collective's website for more info on the artists, and for inspiration.
