FALL OF THE MOON: AN HOMAGE TO MAHMOUD DARWISH & THE ARAB SPRING
Lebanese 'oud Master Marcel Khalifé and the Al Mayadine Ensemble perform the prophetic poems of the Arab World's most renowned and beloved poet, the late Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish, and pay tribute to the Arab spring that has swept through the region over the past year. Darwish often referred to Khalifé as his ""heart's artistic twin."" Though they came from different countries and backgrounds, both artists shared a sense of desperation and hope about the state of their respective homelands and the world.

Lebanese Master Marcel Khalifé will perform the prophetic poems of the Arab World’s most renowned and beloved poet Mahmoud Darwish, and pays tribute to the Arab Spring.
The poetry of Mahmoud Darwish (www.mahmouddarwish.com), the melodies of Marcel Khalife (www.marcelkhalife.com), resonating across the Arab world from the Middle East to North Africa, resounding above the din of conflict and poverty, singing instead of the shade of grapevines, the bright eyes of loved ones, the heartache of divisions and decline that could be healed, love that could be returned.
