As a freedom-lover, Mahmoud Darwich's wandering words are invoked with dazzling fervour in Ma valise est mon pays, a large-scale concert show orchestrated by the prestigious Palestinian musician Ramzi Aburedwan.

"My country is a suitcase," claims a verse from Mahmoud Darwich, whose entire work is haunted by exile and the quest for the lost homeland - the poet himself having been forced to live for twenty-five years far from his native Palestine because of his writings. A vibrant tribute is paid to him with Ma valise est mon pays, a collective creation directed by Palestinian musician and composer Ramzi Aburedwan. From a variety of backgrounds, several performers - Kamilya Jubran (vocals, oud), Rodolphe Burger (vocals, guitar), Rachida Brakni (narrator), Sarah Murcia (double bass), among others - join Ramzi Aburedwan's musical ensemble to give shape to this cross-border concert show, further enhanced by bright calligraphy.
