Palestine Eté 2004 2

In August 2003, in February and July 2004 and February and August 2005 and during the summers of 2006 and 2007, groups of young international musicians have been working around the discovery of music and presentation and practical approach of the instruments to children.



Instrument-making workshop



Any training, any musical practice assumes to have people available to build, repair and maintain musical instruments. The project "Violin" is thus born from the observation that the lack of Palestinian luthiers. Al Kamandjâti therefore decided to invite luthiers in Palestine and to send young musicians to receive training in Europe.
