David Rovics & Kamala Emanuel – Concert for Palestine, Friday 5th July

Sydney Inner & East
05 July 2024 @ 6:00pm - 10:00 pm

David Rovics is one of the great figures of modern folk and protest music.

His sound and attitude suggest obvious influences like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and early Dylan, as well as drawing from a mighty stream of country folk, union songs and talking blues traditions that he has deepened thanks to inspirational musical allies like Cuba’s Silvio Rodriguez and the writings of the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.

On Friday 5th July from 6-10pm, David Rovics will be our very special guest (as part of his Bearing Witness World Tour) at ‘Food and Music for Palestine’.

The event has been conceived by Addi Road as a ‘welcome dinner’ for newly-arrived people from Gaza and the local community to come together in solidarity.

It will take place inside Gumbramorra Hall at the community centre in Marrickville. Addi Road is encouraging everyone to bring a plate to supplement the delicious food being prepared by our volunteers and our friends on site at Koshari Corner café.

Along with the fine food and community spirit, David Rovics will perform both solo and in a duo with his touring partner Kamala Emanuel. Solidarity Choir will be the support act, “bringing you songs for a better world from around the world… in parody, in protest and in possibility… and in four part harmony.” Rovics, Emanuel and Solidarity Choir also plan to perform a few songs together.
