Ramzi Aburedwan is the founder and artistic director of the annual Palestinian Musical Journey Festival for Spiritual and Traditional Music produced by Al Kamandjâti starting in 2016. The festival offers high quality performances, lectures, photo exhibitions, workshops and guided tours in Palestine, with a focus on heritage sites.
"Musician, composer and conductor, Ramzi Aburedwan flows with great ease between East and West. From Arabic maqam to symphonic music, Palestinian folklore to tarab or from Sufi incantations to music for large orchestras, he has made this universal musical space his home and destiny, and in doing so, has overcome the fractures of his past."
