Artists Against Apartheid is an ongoing concert series in Montreal that brings

Over eleven concerts in Montreal incredible local artists performed for

Broadcast will feature performances from groundbreaking artists from different
front-lines within Montreal's internationally celebrated music scene...

Featuring recordings of live performances from the late Lhasa de Sela,
saxophonist Colin Stetson, violinist Sarah Neufeld from Arcade Fire,
percussionist Shahzad Ismaily, cellist Rebecca Foon, Esmerine, Seven Arrows
ensemble featuring Andrew Barr (percussion), Sarah Pagé (harp), Yuki Isami
(flute), Joe Grass (pedal steel) and also a trio performance featuring Sam
Shalabi (oud), Omar Dewachi (oud) and Pierre-Guy Blanchard (percussion)...

As a cultural initiative Artists Against Apartheid occurs as Israel's military
occupation over the Gaza Strip and West Bank intensifies, in violation of
international law and multiple U.N. resolutions. Palestinian citizens face an
entrenched system of racial discrimination and segregation, resembling the
defeated apartheid system in South Africa. A matrix of Israeli-only roads,
electrified fences, and over 500 military checkpoints and roadblocks erase
freedom of movement.

In response to apartheid policies imposed on the Palestinian people by Israel
multiple artists are coming together in Montreal through the ongoing Artists
Against Apartheid concert series, presenting a cultural force in solidarity
with the ongoing Palestinian struggle for freedom.
