I would like to invite you to our upcoming event, (https://www.facebook.com/events/278009564461513), an art exhibition and Contemporary Arabic Music Concert on Saturday, June 4th, featuring Basel Zayed, a unique musician and composer from Jerusalem, Palestine.(https://www.youtube.com/user/Palsadeh/featured) The Art in Exile ( https://www.facebook.com/craig.milanesi/videos/10157661037723529) exhibition presents 70 original paintings by ten artists who reside in refugee camps in Jordan.
