On Thursday 24th November, Casa Árabe will hold a concert by the Palestinian singer Terez Sliman and the Syrian guitarist Yazan Ibrahim, two musical pioneers of the acoustic, hybrid genres and folk scene in the Levante. The session will take place in the framework of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, on 25 November.

With a wealth of collaborative projects spanning over decade of writing, composing, and performing together, Terez Sliman and Yazan Ibrahim are back sharing stage, bringing together soulful and socially conscious songs to a backdrop of blended rhythms of flamenco guitar and the modalities of Arabic maqams.

Their performance will feature some of their best works, from the iconic “Shahrazad” to the smooth and intimate sound that they forged together in “Will you come dream” to calling out the patriarchal norms in society and consecrating womanhood in “A Prayer”.

Terez Sliman is an independent Palestinian singer, songwriter and founder of Nafas workshops and retreats. Born in Haifa, and raised between Haifa, Akka and el-Bi’ineh village, Terez delights herself in the joys of singing through a musical repertoire built upon unique lived experiences. Driven by her innovation, vulnerability, and strong sense of belonging, Terez shatters social taboos and anchors her works in the Mediterranean surroundings while flowing within wider sensualities, becoming a well - loved name in the Palestinian indie music and the Arab World.

Throughout her career, Terez performed extensively in festivals and concert tours in the Arab World, Europe and North Africa, and was presented on numerous world stages and festivals. She has also released many collaborations of independent singles and music videos, as well as taken part in theatrical and musical plays. In March 2020, Terez released her latest album “When the Waves”.

In the context of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Terez's work is particularly significant for its strong commitment to women's rights. This commitment was exemplified by the video "Salah" (prayer), a filmed musical piece that combines the performance of poetry, play and song. It premiered in 2013 on International Women's Day and was released in 12 countries around the world simultaneously. "Salah" aimed to take a clear stance on the commodification of women's bodies, especially denouncing the practices of violence and reification to which women are subjected in many parts of the world.

Yazan Ibrahim is an independent Flamenco guitarist from the Occupied Golan Heights. His passion for Andalusian musical flavors took him from his homeland in Majdal Shams to study flamenco guitar in Granada,m where he attended the Carmen de las Cuevas school, in addition to the "Rafael Orozco" Superior Conservatory of Music in Córdoba, with teachers such as Paco Serrano, Manolo Franco, Carlos Pacheco, Manuel Cera Vera, Nino De Pura and Gabriel Exposito. His innovative collaborations included his solo project “Shams”, Yunamàn (Greek music), Danuk (Kurdish music), Toot Ard (root, rock, reggae), Terez Sliman (jazz, folk, rock), Cremita Jam (Flamenco Jazz), Jorge Pardo, Paquete, Amparo Sanchez, and many more.
