PALESTINE SYMPHONY: FROM TURKEY WITH LOVE
On December 27, 2008, Israeli began its one-sided war on the isolated and besieged Gaza Strip. The Palestinian people in Gaza, although fell in the thousands, exhibited legendary resistance and courage; their steadfastness in the face of that brutality, which continues until this day, deserves to be honored, and always remembered.
Some wonderful independent Turkish musicians (Murat Malay & Tuğrul Karataş) from Istanbul have attempted to do just that: remembering Gaza and Palestine through this very beautiful Palestine Symphony, which comes in four part.
