Reem Kelani
Date 12 October 2016
DescriptionThe Palestinian singer and broadcaster Reem Kelani will be returning to the Tabernacle W11 at 7pm on Wednesday 12th October, accompanied by her faithful trio of:

Bruno Heinen - piano
Ryan Trebilcock - double bass
Antonio Fusco - drums

In the words of the organisers, this concert is "Produced by Nour Festival 10 days ahead of the main festival programme, in celebration of Reem's music and in recognition of her achievements in music globally as well as locally within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea."

It will take place nearly 3 years after her memorable concert at Nour Festival 2012, which was the basis of the recording for her new album "Reem Kelani: Live at the Tabernacle". Buy your copy now at www.reemkelani.com or get one on the night.

Reem's art is very much a female form. In her field research in the Palestinian refugee camps in Palestine and outside, Reem found that it was mostly the older women who were the repositories of the traditional songs. Over the years, Reem has collected many songs, analysed and researched them, and then re-arranged and performed them with her band. Her 1999 article "Burj al-Barajneh Dispatch" will give a flavour: http://reemkelani.com/page_media_writings.asp

Reem is also an outstanding role model to Arab and Muslim women. With a strong sense of religion herself, she is secular in outlook and a powerful (female) band leader on stage. In the past year, Reem has sung solo at the Royal Albert Hall in Sir Karl Jenkins' Stabat Mater, as has she given women-only workshops in community venues in Bradford and Sheffield.
