Hundreds of people turned up at the west London venue to donate, listen to music and take part in an auction. £2000 was raised in the space of a few hours.
Lebanese super-producer Zeid Hamdan was on stage, DJing for Egyptian wonderchild Maryam Saleh (above) and Palestinian oud-player Tamer Abu Ghazaleh. If you haven’t heard Maryam’s amazing voice, you need to.
The threesome were also the opening act for Shubbak (that’s where this pic was taken), a month-long festival of Arab culture taking place across London. Tonight, there’s a collection of short Syrian and Palestinian films in Ladbroke Grove. Go and support London’s Arab creative scene. The full programme is online.
