The Forbidden Orchestra

Welcome to a musical knockout at this year’s March 8 celebration!

Five strong, brilliant and groundbreaking artists have joined forces in this alliance called The Forbidden Orchestra to explore various musical
expressions, promote equality and unite people through music.

The practice of traditional music and the playing of traditional instruments has been and still remains a question of gender, where women are invisible.
That’s why it’s not just great music, but also strong personal stories that come out when 5 women from different countries and cultures come together
in The Forbidden Orchestra and tell of their cumbersome and sometimes difficult path to be able to keep up with the only thing that is right for
them – music!

Emilia Amper – nyckelharpa and vocal
Liliana Zavala – percussion and vocal
Nadin Al Khalidi – mandole, saz, bass and vocal
Sousou Cissoko – choir, guitar and vocal
Simona Abdallah – percussion
