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.

“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”.
