Music: "Sleepless Palestine" The background instrumental medley entitled Sleepless Palestine was performed by:
Iyad Tumar (on Oud) Thomas Raftis (on E-Guitar) Anuj Sehgal (on Acoustic Guitar)
at the Spotlight 2008 show at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany. The performance mixed many musical styles ranging from Oriental, Western and Rock to influences of Mediterranean and Hawaiian as well.
The performance is dedicated to all our brothers and sisters suffering from political oppression and victims of aggression around the world. We salute their hope and strength with this song.
