i was born here in the united states my dad is from palestine he came over in one nine hundred fifty and lived here and started his family here and we've lived always in southern california i'm a professional violinist and i. i do music for movies soundtracks and commercials and record projects i received an e-mail from an orchestra that i work with here in
los angeles they had forwarded to me a correspondence they received from tim party from the national orchestra on the edward sade institute looking for me i'm not sure how he'd discovered me or knew that i was living here but they forward me the e-mail and it was kind of quizzical that somebody was looking for me from that part of the world professionally not it wasn't a family member or something like that so it was quite interesting and intriguing when i got this e-mail and when i learned what it was all about i was very excited to hear that they were trying to bring people from around the world back to to create music.
most of the orchestras that i've worked with in my career have been in los angeles and it's about your ability and how you perform on your instrument doing a project like this was it was more than just being able to play your instrument it was communing with with people and in a way almost family. playing music with them and many of them from all over the world from europe and south america and then in the states and and being able to put it assemble a group together like that was it was really something it felt it felt like something very important was happening and especially through music music is such a great language the the in the. the .

my name is mary m. to maddy my father is palestinian and my mother is japanese. i grew up in japan and i studied in the united states and i live in paris now i certainly listen to all different kinds of music i like rock and. and popular music as well but very since very very early age i must say since around three or four i tend to fight very specifically was classical music and as soon as i started actually singing classical music myself i immediately knew that this was the way that i can express myself the most and the most fully always very important for me to sing in palestine and also with palestinians abroad as well too
because i love i love palestine i love palestinians and i love being in this in this culture and a part of it my background as a palestinian and as a japanese those are the strongest of course that's part of my head it. was. you know. i feel that my background has helped me immensely. is a big part of who i am so i grew up listening to a lot of classical music certainly song by my own time yeah but also my father listened to a lot of bach and mozart at home all the arts played
a huge part of my daily life since i was born i would just like to say that all was so thrilled to be here so thrilled to the always welcomed back they say you know they say welcome home to me when i'm here even if it's been even if it's been a few years that i haven't been back and even if i'm so ashamed that i don't speak arabic but they but my family and friends always say welcome home and that is how i feel so i really am grateful for that. i was recording this morning at capitol records for a show called the x.
factor we do it usually on sundays every week it ranges from a couple hours to several hours today was about a three hour session. and my uncle is joining us he has traveled from northern california city called palo alto. and he'll be arriving at los angeles international airport where we're on our way to go collect them i think are going to really. joy meeting him because he is from palestine born and raised in palestine speaks arabic unfortunately i speak no arabic so i'm and i'm really happy that i can bring my uncle and he can add some culture to our of our gathering here so for now i'll grab my uncle and head back to the house and then i will spend some time ago.
just here i was certain to come off right away. as well as. the fact is they took their land and i remember it became. but i didn't forty four forty five forty six. it became impossible to go from one place to another without having an id and that's was restricting our freedom and it became ugly that we have to put up with our foreign have telling us where to go when to go. and now when i see the situation
is happening. in palestine that you have to secede your land and give it to these people because they tell you saw i'm sorry the military said we have to mow down your house we don't care where you go or we hope you die in the desert somewhere that is an affront to humanity these are some of the pictures of villa. in the town be a section of jerusalem where i was born. and this is a picture of the very last it was completed in one thousand nine hundred twenty six this is a picture that is now touted the net to show villa how rashid
. it was taken by the israeli government golda mayer lived in this house and i think begun was married in this house too and golda may deny and her memoirs that an arab ever lived in that house and she also marred the name of the village her rashid. so that count for bernadotte would not notice that she is living in the arabs house.

there is something about music and it depending on the style that you're doing but for me when i when i'm playing and performing especially if you get taken into a world where you know you're you're thinking about your music only you know you're not thinking about what's happening back home and you're dealing with issues that are difficult at home or and in your family or your friends or anything like that you're in you're in the moment of the music and it's kind of a respite from from the daily grind of life so i really look forward to the concerts specially because you get a you get a break from from reality really you're just in this world of music and it's refreshing to be doing that and not thinking about everything else that you're going to be thinking about once it's over.
so i'm just getting my things together for the trip and i'm packing what i think i might need over there the weather is probably going to be. it might be a little chilly so i've got a couple things that i'd like to have with me along with my performing outfit and some gifts for some family members and things like that we're joining maybe fifty or sixty members of the orchestra that are coming many of them from all different parts of the world for including europe and south america and this and the states like me and so i'm going to take these things with me and i'll grab my violin and i will head to the airport and begin the journey.
for the party be honed again end of the year put on top of the what of the publisher. as you can. see and it was kind of a list. you know i mean i'm seventy in the second was able to hop up. again for the twenty m. of what i was about at one of the but i know mother publicans all of us but i was not going to last.
an adult. cause. and will soon come to an end and mostly coffee couldn't process. chickenfoot at the . thought of that but a common cold but the matecumbe chicken to make it to. if there is no wrong man economic theory but how all of them common cold can also model him in one of them about the free when you move but what if we are. about what values it would be the middle a millionaire model with a million requests a week what about. i
a lot of issues and i managed and also what it does will be offended to be a dick be it best business a bill national camembert or laughlin me because you are more t.m.i. i'm already home for him a kid in the corner cellar with a sort of a tom can measure the fellas in a year why he and butter out in the usual had to do your computer illinois in. the home to mom was that like a guess this is a sign from the homeless. i'm
always looking for palestinian poetry to sing and this poem is particularly special to my heart because first of all it's by the great. and. i really felt close to it because i feel also like. i'm palestinian but like so many of us in the diaspora so many of us who had to leave. i speak also as somebody from a far away land. and somebody who who feels this great nostalgia whenever i return and also i feel that the poem is really speaking about the experience of somebody like my father who had to leave. as a child and. he feels he has been living in exile his whole life but every
that was another one to find out. for us out. of a little thought. well as a fad orchestra has had a role. because if the how we talk about how we as voters that are invalid then you hear from us the in hock knows if i'm in academia. or we had this here nor would we still had this one phone call or even foreseen said we need a bomb or in a bad thought because that or because if we don't it because of us there would be his head and the mission had
hawse what the number on and mocha. surely will coon. like to show how of if you do nothing you i mean as if it doesn't fit for francis if it can be kept if you do a lot of be at any of us in our lives if we had a if you had a must i thought on a lot of different mobile and how you robbie and i need to look in a medically hone medically have you had any tech across what could an orchestra let me know what is the. allies if you need more duty and how the heck you muppet look we've got a little muscle to him as if i'm as if the coffee hung only. fuck off air that to be in. the coffin of us a lot of b. you know how they shoot any bus and i me and i learn up a line and i long for him all the best enemies eat i hate i am for heavily in. the in. the look will be going to the cliff with bush on hold it going
people and you're trying to do your best and it's all about the play here that's why it's a much deeper level you're. mixing with people from your background and getting to hear the language and have the food and see the sights and it really is such a different experience doing it for something like this than it is say a job back home it is a dream for me i have never had the opportunity to come to palestine and i'm told tim. mohamed foggo contacted me i really didn't know when i would ever have that opportunity so it was really a great chance to come out and meet people of my heritage and play music with them and it's a it's a very nonpolitical situation so it's really nice because we're here just to spread the word of palestinian culture the good the good side of the culture.
so how might i tell a dick said hi and then watch the doma any must sit in the list so you say a visual will cease it's a half the abyss damon had to be seated. but it's best to behave to have a bad enough to see what a woman can and not of him did a lot of in the law send a man couldn't you know what had little to how did you interest in a big fight it was a sin of the connection been know been in musicians surely to do to say. to the new dumbness my beautiful. but so many choose to join you wish he had
a admin whom by then he had a he had some sistine alyson and are still out of style a home full of steam and a bitch dam and busy china care. when i'm behind me but at the plaza in the summit behind it. ted i'm assuming that if the market mature fashion for missing vision was for them and showed it deary and he said end of t.t. behavior has been no enough to get us to new will be hit boom of the dish and the. bus but he couldn't actually.
thinking with the palestine national orchestra it's quite different because it brings together to. two of my passions my identity as a palestinian and also my identity as as a musician and it's an extremely special experience because the orchestra is made up of musicians professional palestinian positions who live all around the world and work professionally and they we gather for the sake of this orchestra and all of us feel this sense of very strong identity as a palestinian and we have something very very specific and very passionate and important to communicate to the world and this makes the experience unlike
