Sarah Gillespie: Ya Bai Miriam – For Ismail, Zakaria, Ahmed and Mohamed – Killed on Gaza Beach on July 18th, 2014
Meanwhile, in light of what happened yesterday on a beach in Gaza, I wanted to share this traditional song with you, 'Ya Bai Miriam – Oh Myriam's Father'. I fell in love with this tune years ago when I heard it and especially with the impassioned sweet voice of the singer. According to my Palestinain friend this song used to be sung for weddings but over the years, has become a song for those killed by Israeli brutality. The singer is listed as El Funoun and Quentin Dujardin on guitar.
