Checkpoint Rock. Canciones desde Palestina

The palestinian-israeli conflict

Closing ceremony

Checkpoint Rock. Canciones desde Palestina

This is a trip through a place which the world is always looking at but which we know almost nothing about. What music provides this mythical place with a voice and melody? Who are its most representative musicians and how do they live? What do they think about the place that they have to live in and how do they deal with it through their ly-rics and their melodies?

From the billboards and the neon of Tel Aviv to the poverty and despair of the Occupied Territories of Gaza and the West Bank, Checkpoint Rock. Canciones desde Palestina looks at very different musicians, from village to vi-llage and from checkpoint to checkpoint, a trip that will change the view we have of this people in conflict.
