Join us for a night of celebration and solidarity at the launch of the 7th annual London Migration Film Festival with a live performance by the Saied Silbak trio followed by a DJ set by Ernesto Chahoud!

Saied Silbak trio: Saied Silbak is a Palestinian composer and oud player born in Shafaa`mr, a city located in the lower Galilee of occupied Palestine. His newly formed trio brings to light a mixture of his own original compositions as well as songs from the classical Arabic and Turkish repertoire, exposing the audience not only to his beautiful and highly crafted compositions, but also to some of the most well-known composers of the golden age of Arabic music.

Saied is joined by Fred Thomas on double bass and Hanen Kiwan on percussion.

Ernesto Chahoud: Ernesto Chahoud is a renowned DJ, compiler and music researcher from Beirut who brings the most danceable and sometimes strangest records from the Middle East, Ethiopia, and beyond to people’s ears. He co-founded the Beirut Groove Collective and hosts monthly radio shows on NTS and Totally Wired Radio.
