Next Music Station Special (Part 2)


In 2009, Fermín Muguruza made Checkpoint Rock. Canciones desde Palestina, a documentary that shortly after its premiere, earned him a passionate assignment from Al Jazeera: to document the Arab world in eight monographic documentaries. From Morocco to Lebanon, from Egypt to Yemen, via Tunisia or Sudan. The result is Next Music Station, an exploration of the traditional and emerging sounds, rhythms and contexts of the Arab world. Almost a year of shooting and over eighty interviews reveal the extraordinary diversity, the richness of the cultural legacy and the vitality of its musicians, which, in some cases, draw us into its atmosphere and the conflicts these countries experienced before the Arab Spring. Following a screening of the documentaries on Wednesday November 2nd and Thursday 3rd, Muguruza will chat about the project with Montaser Marai, producer of the series for Al Jazeera, in an encounter chaired by Lidia Martorell.
