Sama Abdulhadi (DJ), Mabe (DJ)
Moderator: Ruth Daniel (In Place of War)
A conversation led by Ruth Daniel, CEO of In Place of War, an organisation working in places of conflict that uses music as a tool to make positive social change. She is joined by Sama Abdulhadi, Palestine’s first DJ and electronic music producer, and Mabe, a DJ and journalist from Caracas, Venezuela. Mabe's style is related to both technology and living in a world without boundaries, also known as syncretism, which she believes is in the blood of all Latin Americans. The conversation will explore their role in music, what it means to come from a place blighted by conflict, and what their ambitions are for the music that they play and make, and the role of the music scenes in their conflicted countries.
