Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2013: Katibe 5
Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (formerly Arabic) returns to the city this year for its twelfth festival. Join a culturally rich collection of talented artists from across the Arab world from 17 May to 14 July. LAAF 2013 promises to be bigger and better than ever before, offering something for everyone.
This year, LAAF focuses on the question of identity, the faces of Arabs today. Do those in the UK have a British face or an Arab face and does the dual identity add richness to the mix or merely divide and confuse? What of the Arab face in the media; if this is not a true reflection what have artists done to challenge or collude with this misconception? LAAF explores how many forms of art reflect this complex identity.
Katibe 5 are one of the Middle East's most dynamic and electric hip hop bands. The members of the Katibe 5 (which means Squad 5) were all born and grew up in a refugee camp in Beirut, where civil war and discrimination separated them from affluent Beirut society. Katibe 5's songs tell their story of how they rose above victimisation, poverty and prejudice to take responsibility for their own lives and their community.
