I just watched the DVD of the documentary about Ramallah Concert (2005) by the West-East Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim. This DVD describes about the long and difficult process of making a concert in Ramallah by the orchestra, which consists of musicians form Israel and form Arabic countries lead by Daniel Barenboim. Before watching this DVD, I didn’t know anything about this orchestra and his project. I was very touched by this documentary and impressed by the people who joined this project because it must have required a great deal of courage to join this orchestra. With all devastating situations going on in the world, this documentary gave the hope that impossible can become possible and I was glad to know that the music can be part of this process.
By the way, I’m following the news of the march of the monks in Burma.
I really hope that the democracy will be back in Burma!!!
