Events in Amman, Jan 31 – Feb 6

January 31, 2010

Music is the highlight of this week in Amman - so many concerts and gigs taking place. A group of local artists and musicians put together an event titled "Exit to School" to support the children of Gaza, and saturday's show features performances by al-Hannouneh group, Autostrad, Tareq Al-Jundi, Sahar Khalifeh, Arabic rappers Samm and Psycholas, and a new band led by Tareq Abu Kwaik called Al Morabba3. That's definitely one concert you don't want to miss. Starting this week, Chapter 11 will be playing two weekly live jazz gigs instead of just one. So besides Tuesdays at Canvas, you can enjoy their live show every Friday at the newly opened Cafe de Paris in Jabal Luweibdeh.

Policeman: Jordan First

بقلم لينا شنّك

من أيام المدرسة، تحديدا من صف تاسع و طالع، بديت احس انه عندي رسالة، عندي رأي و انوه بتأثر بالناس حوالي وبدي اوصل صوتهم. كنت اتخيل انو رح اصير كاتبة قبل ما اصير اميل للصحافة كتير اكتر، بس كنت اتخيل انه الي مستقبل بهاد المجال و انو رح اوصل على مسرح، رح آخد جائزة و رح يكونوا اهلي قاعدين بالصف الاول، رح اطلع احكي كلمة زغيرة، رح اهدي الجائزة لأهلي و لكل الناس اللي امنوا فيّ ولبلدي الأردن.

بعدين رح يحطولي اغنية لعمر العبداللات؛ زمان كانت الاغنية "غزا البيارق"، إما مقطع "عمان بعيدك عيّدي" أو مقطع "والاردن يا ام الرجال"، بعدين صرت أتخيل المشهد بأغنية "ارفع ايدك قد التحية" وآخر اشي اغنية "اهل الهمة" ومقطع "بنت بلادي شد الهمة خلي ولادنا يضلوا بنعمة ايدي...

Events in Amman, Jan 24 – 30

January 24, 2010

This week's highlights are two interesting documentaries: the first is "As the Poet Said," which premiered last month at the Dubai Film Festival and which takes viewers on a journey through the life of late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish. The second is "12 Angry Lebanese,"  winner of First prize Muhr Arab Award – Documentaries. The film documents a play performed by 45 inmates in Lebanon’s notorious “Roumieh” detention facility, based on Reginald Rose’s “12 Angry  Men”. Jordanian musician Emad Alaeddin's album launch concert is tomorrow. There's live jazz on Tuesday, Beit Al-Ruwwad on Wednesday, and a fusion of music by Syrian and French musicians in a concert titled Bab Assalam on Thursday. Look out also for Darat Al-Funun's art talk on Tuesday, and Talasim's weekly standup comedy night (also on Tuesday. You must've noticed that Tuesday is the busiest day in Amman's culture and art agenda). Here you go. And don't forget...
