East In East @Passing Clouds

East In East @Passing Clouds: A monthly night dedicated to bringing the best in Middle Eastern contemporary music, film, poetry and art to London's East End. This installment will feature a screening of the award-winning documentary 'A Tale of Two Syrias' by Yasmin Fedda, followed by a discussion led by Highlight Arts (the team behind Reel Syira, Iraq and Afghanistan Festivals) and music by the Raast Collective. Hailing from Palestine, Portugal and most places in between!, the Raast will play songs of love and resistance that they have either written or inherited, through the filter of London streets. Expect oud, electric guitar and deep beats. Taking place on 5 February, 2015 at Passing Clouds, 1 Richmond Rd, Dalston, London E8 4AA.
