woman. As a successful and popular artist who performs on important stages in the world,
while a large part of the Israeli public is unaware of her existence. Despite the complexity
of creating as a Palestinian in Israel, she chose to stay in the village of her childhood and
create in Israel in her own language and in collaboration with her son Firas and her
daughter Yara.
