Music For Gaza

As the unconscionable genocide of the Palestinian people plays out in real time, the solidarity of the majority of the artists on these shores has been utterly unwavering. The less said about our hypocrite headed to Eurovision, the better, but aside from them, artists like Kneecap, Gurriers and Soda Blonde have dropped out of performances at massive US festivals like SXSW for their ties to Israel. Lankum, who share a member with the phenomenal ØXN, have had shows cancelled in Germany and speeches cut from RTÉ Choice Prize Awards, but whether it’s Ian Lynch’s ever present keffiyeh or Radie Peat‘s moving, poignant words as they accept awards, their work to voice the horrors happening in Gaza has been ceaseless.

With all proceeds going to MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians), this special performance also brings together experimental folk wunderkind, Junior Brother, art punk overlords Pretty Happy, and the ecstatic jubilation that is Mohammad Syfkhan to do the right thing. To try to make a stand to aid the people of Palestine.

Words: Adhamh Ó Caoimh
