In 2005 A’edoon, a Palestinian youth theatre group from Balata Refugee Camp in the West Bank, visited Ireland, Scotland and England to perform ‘dabke’ dance and drama at local festivals. Organisers had seen the trip as a chance to demonstrate to a foreign audience the richness and vibrancy of Palestinian culture. It was also an opportunity to take a large group of young people away from the dangers and stresses of a life enclosed by occupation and conflict.

As the group crossed between the West Bank and Jordan, a 15-year-old performer was taken away by soldiers. Mohammed was kept in interrogation for over two months and ultimately sentenced by a military court on spurious charges. He is due for release in 2012.

Rich, passionate and absorbing, the album contains an eclectic mix of songs and tunes from a variety of genres. Traditional Irish and Basque tracks nestle comfortably between thought-provoking political folk and Palestinian hip-hop contributions.
