RIMA TARAZI
Palestinian Musician and Composer
"Playing music has never felt like a job, because it is a passion of mine. I was not a professional musician, but I spent all my life immersed in music, since my very first piano lessons at Birzeit School with Master Salvador Arnita.
I started composing music early in life, even before I graduated.”

RIMA TARAZI
Palestinian Musician and Composer
"Although all that I have written can not be defined as national music, but an expression of my personal feelings of sorrow (later I also added the lyrics), I have always been very close to my land."

Rima Tarazi has composed dozens of pieces as well as music for various works of leading Palestinian poets, such as Mahmoud Darwish, Samih Al-Qasim, or Fadwa Touwan.

During her artistic career, she has always had an interest in education, to such an extent that she has been one of the founders of the first music institutes in Palestine.

Palestinian Musician and Composer
"The message I always want to convey and try to propagate in society, especially in the school environment, is that music is an unmatched educational tool. It has a special trait, because it teaches people to work together, to team up."

Everything started because of her love for classical music, which then extended to composition, hymns, prayers and other social and non-social themes. Through her work, Rima seeks to inspire hope and decision in all those who listen to her music.

"When I am sad or angry I am headed to the piano ... when I am happy, I prefer to spend time with my grandchildren.”

"My music always expresses humanity values, hope and pain ... because I have hope inside me!"
