Gilad Atzmon Promotes Upcoming ‘Jazza Festival’ in London for Palestinians

Gilad Atzmon Special Announcement In The Muffin Post

Hello Everybody,

Sarah Gillespie, myself and at least 40 other leading artists from UK and Palestine are trying to achieve the impossible next week.

We are promoting and playing together in a massive music festival for Palestine. We are flying musicians to London, we are mixing jazz with folk with hip hop and roots music. We all believe one thing – that artists who support Palestine must say so loudly and proudly using our notes and our voices. Jazza Festival is serious but is also a big party and we want you to join in.

The funds raised in these 2 nights will help Free Palestine Movement deliver more and more humanitarian aid to Palestine.

I am also proud and delighted to announce that Shadia Mansour, the Palestinian Hip Hop queen also joined the Jazza Festival line up.

You can listen to the amazing Shadia and mind blowing Stormtrap (ex- Ramallah Underground) singing together on a track I produced recently together with Robert Wyatt and Ros Stephen.

Activist Gilad Atzmon says ‘The Tide Has Changed’

The Muffin Post

Jazz saxophonist, novelist and anti-Zionist political activist Gilad Atzmon’s album “The Tide Has Changed” addresses how his support of Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has brought meaning to his music and his life.

To Gilad, the fact that more people from all walks of life are now willing to confront Israel and Zionism represents that the tide has changed to favor the Palestinians’ struggle. Born in Israel, his criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists.
