Mahmoud Darwish

Mahmoud Darwish, Palestinian poet 1942-2008

=================================

2011

Poet of the people: Mahmoud Darwish

I worked with Radio National’s Poetica in 2011–three years after Darwish died– to put together a story about his work and the people who love his poetry in Australia.

I spoke to academics, local Palestinians from all age groups who could recite his poetry beautifully, and understood the layers of meaning within it.

Darwish wrote passionate poetry about despair and love, about Israelis and Palestinians trapped together and waiting for someone to throw them a line; about his lovers – both Arab and Jew and about hope.

This is a short excerpt from the piece which you can hear in full here

This was a project i worked on in 2003 that gave voice to Muslim and Arab young people who wanted to say something different than what the mainstream media was saying about them and their community.

There was a lot of creativity and high energy, and i put together several short music pieces. Below is one of them.
