our mission

Welcome to PalMusic UK

PalMusic UK facilitates the growth of talent and creativity.

We bring Palestinian musicians to study and perform in Britain and send British musicians and teachers to Palestine, to enhance the cultural life of both nations.

We foster close ties with the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music, the vibrant institution that teaches Classical and Arabic Music in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Nablus and Gaza, while maintaining outreach programmes throughout Palestine.

Supporting young Palestinian musicians

Children and young people living in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza are restricted in their everyday lives, facing extreme difficulties and uncertainty about the future. 

Please help PalMusic today. Every penny you give will provide joy, hope and attainment for Palestinian young people.


We are the UK ambassadors for the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in Palestine which provides musical education of the highest quality to young Palestinians.

“There are many bridges that music forms between silence and sound, bridging internal spaces of creativity with the audiences. PalMusic is but one of these bridges, stretched over a river of Palestinian culture and civilisation, facilitating a living Palestinian history expressed in music”.

- Heba Zaphiriou-Zarifi, former Chair of PalMusic UK
