Bashar Murad

Bashar Murad is a promising Palestinian singer, song-writer, and video artist living in East Jerusalem, producing POP music in English and Arabic with a Palestinian spirit. With lyrics and ideas that shatter stereotypes and highlight social issues, including gender equality and LGBTQ+ rights, that are seldom addressed in Palestine, Bashar wants to challenge cultural norms in Palestine, and present Palestinians in a light that is rarely seen in the media. In 2018, Murad released several tracks which garnered attention including, “Shillet Hamal” (Bunch of Bums), Ilkul 3am Bitjawaz (Everyone’s Getting Married) and UN commissioned song and music video “Ana Zalameh” (I Am A Man). In 2019 he directed the upcoming music video for Palestinian Rap group, DAM, and is currently recording his upcoming EP, “Maskhara”.
