Shubbak Festival will return to London’s Barbican Hall on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 with a special tribute concert to the late Palestinian singer, songwriter and composer Rim Banna. The show will include musicians who knew her best as well as close peers in the Palestinian music scene.

The performers include Lebanese visual artist and singer-songwriter Tania Saleh, Palestinian composer and pianist Faraj Suleiman and Syrian producer/MC Bu Kolthoum who will be performing newly re-orchestrated versions of Rim Banna’s material, accompanied by a specially assembled band.

The event is called “The Trace of the Butterfly,” which is the name of one of Banna’s songs as well as a poem by Mahmoud Darwish.
