Ramzi Aburedwan, virtuoso of the bouzouk, oud and viola, is continuing to encourage children in Palestinian refugee camps to learn music. Having been raised in a refugee camp himself, the musician is aware of the daily struggles that these children face. The lack of space and opportunities for musical development, was one of the reasons for Ramzi Aburedwan to found Al Kamandjâti in Palestine in 2005. Since then, the music school has provided many musical opportunities for children in refugee camps.
Born and raised in a Palestinian refugee camp, Ramzi Aburedwan only began to play music in his late teens and is now a world-class solo musician and leader of the Palestine National Ensemble of Arabic Music. Enjoy the gentle sounds of Ramzi’s bouzouk, accompanied by oud, accordion and percussion on this evocative instrumental album.
