The line-up also includes Daragh Lynch of Lankum, DJ Sally Cinnamon, and The Loughran Family.
Earlier this month, a group of young people form the Lajee Centre in Aida Camp in the West Bank, Palestine, set off on a tour of Ireland, taking in shows across Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Kildare and Galway. To mark the final night of their tour, they're set to play a special gig at The Workman's Club in Dublin on Thursday, September 22 – featuring a thrilling selection of musical guests.
In addition to traditional Palestinian music and dance, the Palestine solidarity gig will feature performances from Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Clare Sands, The Mary Wallopers (DJ Set), The Loughran Family, Daragh Lynch of Lankum, and DJ Sally Cinnamon.
All tickets sales will go directly to the Lajee Centre – which was founded in Aida Refugee Camp in 2000, by a group of young people from the camp who wanted to serve the community.
Lajee – which means ‘refugee’ in Arabic – is a community-based grassroots creative cultural centre that works with new generations of Palestinians as they continue their ongoing struggle for justice and rights. There are numerous units and programmes at Lajee, including music and Dabka (dance).
There's also a community gym and movement space, ACLAÍ Palestine, located in the Lajee Centre, set up by Cork-based West Belfast native Ainle Ó Cairealláin in 2020.
