Reem returns to Vestry Hall to give a workshop on Arabic traditional singing and music. Like her May 2009 workshop in Sorby House, participants will learn about Arabic song, and they will be encouraged to connect with the songs of their mothers and grandmothers. In 2003, Reem wrote and presented a documentary for BBC Radio 4 entitled “Yemeni Echoes in a Northern Town” on the music of Sheffield’s Yemeni community. You can be sure of an unforgettable day with Reem! This event is funded by the Arts Council of England and is open to all women. There will be no charge.
