Sprinting Gazelle: Palestinian Songs


Debut album from one of the foremost researchers and performers of Palestinian music, singer and broadcaster Reem Kelani. SPRINTING GAZELLE encompasses Reems arrangement of traditional Palestinian songs that she recorded and collated from her maternal family in Nazareth, from women in the refugee camps in Lebanon and from other Diaspora Palestinian communities. The CD also includes songs which are Reems own musical settings of contemporary poetry by the likes of Mahmoud Darwish, Rashid Husein, Mahmoud Salim al-Hout and Salma Khadra Jayyusi. Reem Kelani is Palestinian but her vocal style seems to effortlessly transcend any boundaries. - Time Out, London An extraordinary musical map of Palestine emerges from her work, more vibrant than any historical document. - The Guardian Tracks: As Nazarene Women Crossed the Meadow (Qataen an-Nasraawiyyaat) / The Cameleer Tormented My Heart (Adthab el-Jammaal Qalbi) / Galilean Lullaby (Tahlileh Jaliliyyeh) / A Bakers Dozen (Habl el-Ghiwa) / Mawwaal (Variations On Loss) / Yearning (Khawaatir wa-Asdaa) / Sprinting Gazelle (Ah!
