Story

Turquoise Coconut presents Prayers for Palestine, The Globe, Newcastle, 16 May 2024, 19:00

Entry is free, but generous donations are requested.

Turquoise Coconut presents ‘Prayers for Palestine’, a fundraising concert bringing together musicians and spoken word artists for an evening of collective contemplation on the themes of grief, loss, and suffering, but also hope, forgiveness, and transformation.

Through this performance, Turquoise Coconut hopes to raise vital funds, to show solidarity with all who suffer at the hands of this appalling violence, and to offer a space for grounded and patient reflection in a spirit of communal resistance.

All proceeds will go to Medical Aid for Palestinians. MAP has launched an unprecedented emergency response amid growing critical health needs in Gaza and the occupied West Bank including East Jerusalem, resulting from the current escalation of violence and Israel’s ongoing bombardment and complete siege on Gaza.

Spoken word contributions will be given by Tahmina Ali and Ellie Armon Azoulay. The musical ensemble will feature Will Hammond (vibraphone), Faye MacCalman (reeds), John Pope (double bass), Tobias Sarra (keys & voice), and John Garner (violin & shakuhachi).
