Mohammed Assaf

Palestine’s biggest pop star sings material from his newest album

Sharply dressed, handsome and with a faultless voice, Mohammed Assaf seems like your typical poster boy pop star, but his story is far from usual. Overcoming incredible odds to get an audition – travelling from the Gaza Strip to Egypt, navigating difficult checkpoints along the way, the boy who grew up in a refugee camp has become an inspiration and figure of unity for the whole of Palestine. His songs combine Arabic music tradition with modern pop sensibilities. See him live in London, as he sings material from his newest album, alongside familiar favourites from his time on TV talent show Arab Idol.
