Music, Movies, and Books

“By music we can escape life on the one hand , and understand life deeper on the second hand.”
- Edward Said.

Music: rich kind of pop, jazz, classical, and personally I’m involved more in Classical Music as I studied it deeply in Composition and Theory Bachelor Degree and I’m studying it as a Masters degree in Bologna now.
Recently I’m interested in discovering jazz more

To know about Palestine I strongly recommend reading “On Palestine” book by Noam Chomnsky & Ilan Pappé,
And “10 myths about Israel” by Ilan Pappè.

Books:
Sapiens (a brief history of humankind) by Yuval Harari,
Arabic Literature and Arabic Novels, and the two books about Palestine that I mentioned above.
