On today’s Salaam Radio Show, Rasha Tayeh founder & director of Beit e’Shai, @beiteshai, is filling in for Marroushti in dedication to the Land, and the importance of ecological & land-based practices. Rasha interviews Prof Mazin Qumsiyeh from Bethlehem, who will be visiting Naarm in May to discuss the impacts of militarism on nature. The show also commemorates Palestine’s Land Day, highlights the joint struggle of Indigenous communities in Palestine & Aboriginal Nations in so-called Australia, and plugs important events coming up at Beit e’Shai Teahouse on Land, Biodiversity & the Colony and more.

Sonic musings selected by Rasha for this afternoon’s show are reflective, ambient, electronic, and sometimes classical; from some of her favourite artists including: Nicolas Jaar, Checkpoint 303, Khyam Allami, Oum, & Ruba Shamshoum, with releases from Al Gharib record label. 

Links to events, readings & campaigns referenced in today’s show can be found below and will also be published on the linktree in the bio of @beiteshai Instagram page.
