ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Rafeef ’s poetry demands to be heard. She is powerful, emotional and political. Please read her work and see her perform. You cannot then be indifferent to the Palestinian cause" says Ken Loach of Rafeef Ziadah’s poetry.

"Sometimes anger provokes truth: bare, free, not to be stifled or evaded. Sometimes anger, indignation, despair, full blown love of the life of one’s people, one’s own land and planet, can bring fierce flower to the poet’s heart. Then we are blessed with passionate words of resistance that can become the foundation of prophecy. A change for which there is no turning back. Such is the case of this poet." Alice Walker

Rafeef is a Palestinian performance poet and human rights activist based in London. Her performances of poems like ‘We Teach Life, Sir’ and ‘Shades of Anger’ went viral online within days of their release. We Teach Life, her second album, is a powerful collection of spoken word with original music compositions from Phil Monsour.

Since releasing her first album Hadeel, Rafeef has toured many countries, performing poetry and conducting workshops with youth. She was chosen to represent Palestine at the South Bank center Poets Olympiad in 2012.
