NEWSThe Brick, a drama on BBC Radio 4 about a Palestinian woman in Jerusalem. The play was written by fellow Palestinian Selma Dabbagh and produced by Sarah Bradshaw. It was first broadcast on 13 January 2014.
Reem contributed two songs to the Anti-Capitalist Roadshow album, which was released in Dec 2012, and she regularly performs as part of this collective of leading singer-songwriters.
Reem's Sayyid Darwish project has suffered setbacks from a lack of consistent funding and the instability in Egypt. Plans to record several tracks there in Autumn 2013 had to be postponed. Reem is still working as hard as ever on the project, which we hope to complete in good time. In the interim, we plan to release a live recording of Reem's November 2012 concert at the Tabernacle, Notting Hill.
Go to BBC Arabic TV for a foretaste.
