Why we support the boycott of the Israeli 'oud festival'

Gazelleband are proud to sign this statement, which has been published into a half-dozen languages and signed by Palestinian and international musicians. This boycott call represents a committed fight against the colonisation of the oud by a regime aiming to ethnically cleanse Jerusalem. We urge other musicians and artists to sign the boycott statement, joining internationally renowned oud players like Ahmad Al Khatib and Amal Waqar, and stars such as Kamilya Jubran, Tamer Abu Ghazaleh and Roger Waters in a gesture of anti-racism and solidarity.​​​​​​​
