A Voice that Penetrated the Apartheid Walls: Singer Rim Banna and Palestinian Cultural Resistance

Palestinian singer Rim Banna passed away at the age of 51. Her death on March 24, after a decade-long battle with cancer, brought grief to Palestinians everywhere. Music unites Palestinians when politicians fail. In fact, while for years the collective calls for 'Palestinian unity' has gone unheeded, Palestinian music has continued to bring Palestinians closer.
