Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - January 25, 2006

Tonight, as part of KPFA’s winter fund drive, we will hear UC History Professor Beshara Doumani in conversation with Suad Amiry, the author of Sharon and My Mother-in-Law. Irreverent, darkly funny, unexpected, and very unlike any other writing on Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land, Sharon and My Mother-in-Law describes Palestinian architect Suad Amiry’s experience of living daily life in the West Bank town of Ramallah. With a wickedly sharp ear for dialogue and a keen eye for the most telling details, Amiry gives us an original, ironic, and firsthand glimpse into the absurdity-and agony-of life in the Occupied Territories. To read an excerpt, visit here.

During the program, we will also listen to selections from the CD Mesk Elil or Honeysuckle by Suad Massi, an internationally known Algerian singer/songwriter now living in France. Her third international release, Honeysuckle, merges both north and West African Grooves with Cape Verdean Morna.
