Salaam Ramak!

Sunday, 9 October 2022 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

For a very special and emotional show, we welcome Iranian photo media artist and feminist activist, Ramak Bamzar who will be talking with us about the current protests in Iran following the death of Zhina / Mahsa Amini and the role that artists and activists within Iran and in Melbourne-Naarm can play. We will also be playing the songs and chants that protestors have been playing during this movement - even field recordings that Jahan Xanlü has collected of protestors singing and chanting. It sounds like half a radio show and half a protest!

Sunday 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Influenced by the Arab spring, globalisation, and social media, Arabic music is now as diverse as ever. Salaam aims to introduce you to the surge of new, modern and reinterpreted sounds of Arabic music ranging from trap, rap, RnB, pop and electronic music.
