In Owen‘s words:
“Saturday 12th March at Agitate, 20 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh, EH12 5JZ
The opening of ‘Ahlain’ will be 7pm – 10pm with some words from Charlie Davies about SkatePal & from Mo’min Swaitat about The Majazz Project. Photographs taken by me in Palestine between 2016 – 2019 and a screening of a super 8 film shot by Charles Myatt and myself in 2016. Some beers provided by Pilot brewery, which will be going out on a donation basis (quid each or pay what you want or something!)
Then there is an after party from 10pm – late downstairs in the same venue. £5 donation.
After the opening the photos will be up until the end of April!
Featuring DJs :
Over several years, Mo’min Swaitat has amassed an archive of rare tapes and vinyl from Palestine and beyond, spanning field recordings of weddings to revolutionary tracks and synth-heavy 80s funk. Many of these were acquired from a former record label in Jenin in the north of the West Bank. The Majazz Project is a research project borne out of the archive, focused around sampling, remixing and reissuing vintage Palestinian and Arabic cassettes. It is a collaboration between Arab and non-Arab DJs, producers and artists interested in shedding new light on the richness and diversity of Arabic musical heritage.
Hiba is a Lebanese DJ and selector based in Edinburgh who uses club spaces to platform Southwest Asian and North African artists as a celebration of Arab culture. She holds regular radio slots at EHFM and Radio Flouka to showcase the diversity and dynamism of Arabic music.

A limited amount of drinks may be available on the night on a donation basis, but BYOB is also encouraged.”
