- Music, History, Social Issues, and Human Rights
When Majid Shokor escaped from Iraq he discovered that the songs he loved as a child in Baghdad have a hidden history. Saddam’s regime purged Iraqi music of its origins, but Majid learns the truth as he travels the world to meet exiled Iraqi musicians – Jewish, Muslim and Christian - who still sing and play these songs. They are reunited in a joyful concert at London’s Barbican Centre, where music and culture are bridges that transcend religion and politics.
