About

Why Me

After obtaining my undergraduate degree from Kingston University, specialising in ethnomusicology, I completed a Master’s degree in Music and Culture at Roehampton University, focusing on cultural theory, politics and ethnomusicology. I obtained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education at Roehampton University in 2008, and have previously worked as a secondary teacher in several comprehensive schools in London.

I am a founding member of an academic research group established by Gothenburg and Birzeit Universities, and have published my research in a collective book entitled Palestinian Music and Song: Expression and Resistance since 1900. I have published a number of articles on the topics of Palestinian music and culture, music under occupation, Palestinian Hip-hop, music of the Palestinian Diaspora and music of the Arab Spring, in magazines such as The Middle East in London, The Youth Times and This Week in Palestine.

I have spoken at several conferences and symposiums about my research, and have been interviewed on BBC World News by Zainab Badawi and on Voice of America on the topic of protest music of the Arab Spring.
