Abeer AlHadrami, Ala’a Ghulam, Salem Bin Sahel

A group of Yemen-based artists and musicians who organized a series of events dubbed Angham, the first of which is centered on a talk between visual artist Abeer Al Hadrami and oud-maker Ala’a Ghulam, and which will also see a group of female musicians including Mahyub Saeed, Maria Al-Ajili, and Sarah Al-Ajili perform a variety of musical pieces in the city of Al-Mukalla. The group planned to document the event and distribute the material online, in the hope that the event’s success would pave the way for the development of a series of similar activities that engage local youth looking to the arts as a way to face the current political strife, as well as attract the general public.
