info 

Growing up in the middle of the field of tension between beautiful visions and brutal reality powers the music now released by this Palestine girls group. The “Daughters of Jerusalem” (Arabic: Banat Al-Quds) are 25 young Palestinian women from families with deep roots in Jerusalem. They all study at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music and live in East Jerusalem. Now they are releasing a CD where they also perform duets with the American Princeton Girlchoir and Det Norske Jentekor / Norwegian Girls Choir. In spite of the oppression these young daughters of Jerusalem suffer under, they have a power of expression that exudes joy and courage. Their songs present both a vision and a lament for their ancient city. They sing and play khanoun (table harp), oud, cello, percussion and double bass.
