Arabian party at Vippa is a partnership between Arab Film Days, Vippa, Aleppo Bahebek, Marrakech and Atlas Band

About Tel Aviv On Fire:
A brilliant satirical comedy with a humorous look at Palestine and the Israeli occupation. We follow Salam, who works on the production of “Tel Aviv on Fire”, a soap-opera which is immensely popular both in Israel and in the Palestinian territories. Tel Aviv on Fire is a brilliant debut film from Palestinian director Sameh Zoabi.

About Atlas band:
We have for many years arranged tremendous parties in cooperation with Atlas band, which is led by Abdel Ali Boubadillah. Atlas band was established in 1994, and is strongly inspired by the Moroccan cultural heritage and Arabian African music. Among other things the band plays gnawa, chaabi, rai, classical Arabic music and folk music, and will this evening be serving us a taste from the Middle East’s rich music tradition, from Iraq in the east to Morocco in the west.
