Powerfully sarcastic lyrics, orchestrated with a contrastive stylized music, in one CD produced by El-Funoun Dance Troupe. Ten songs provoke the essence of our stagnant inner levels, and purposefully contradicts our familiar perceptions, drawing as such profound images in our hearts and minds, with an aspiration towards liberating our imaginations and alignig our  paths. El-Funoun gathers in this production renowned young Palestinian musicians who composed music for lyrics by Wassim El-Kurdi and arrangement by Yaacoub Hamoudeh. 

Raqsit Shamis (Dance of the Sun) 2006

A dance production inspired by timeless Arab-Palestinian heritage that strikes a delicate balance between modernity and heritage. Raqsit Shamis blends themes of love, harvest, praying for rain, nostalgia, flirtation and defiance.  Based on major repertoire by El-Funoun, its music has been re-arranged and dance has been re-choreographed for this production which mainly addresses the young generation of Palestine. Raqsit Shamis aims at sharing Palestine’s cultural dynamism with the world and contributing to Palestinian emancipation and social progress
