Numi- Nami -Tulo | Lullabies from Jaffa to Kampala

January 2020

  • A masterclass led by Prof. Sylvia Nannyonga-Tamusuza, an African ethno-musicologist, and The Rana Jewish-Arab Women’s Choir. Performing lullabies from Africa and the Middle East, Nannyonga-Tamusuza and the choir formed a cross-continental cultural dialogue. In singing together, they express their sensibilities of shared lives and destinies, their hope for life and peace, and the range of feelings shared by all humankind.

    Nannyonga-Tamusuza is an Associate Professor of Music and Head of Performing Arts and Film Department at Makerere University Kampala, Uganda. She is the Coordinator of the Ethnomusicology in Uganda Projects and Founder and Curator of the Makerere University Klaus Wachsmann Audio-Visual Archive.

    The Rana Jewish-Arab Women’s Choir is a unique Jaffa-based musical group made up of Muslim, Jewish and Christian women. The choir gives space for women’s voices, and percives music as a tool to foster intercultural dialogue and deep human relationships.
