Song of the Olive Tree- Leon Rosselson
"The Weeping Olive Trees of Palestine" Article by Sonja Karkar found HERE
Video: A beautiful song about the Palestinian lands by folk singer Leon Rosselson. Born Jewish, his songs of protest have travelled worldwide and have been sung by many great singers. Rosselson has been singing his songs for fifty years appearing all over the world where songs of conscience are sung. This rare concert footage was shot in Edinburgh in October 2007 and this haunting song is on the fantastic CD Turning Silence into Song. His website is www.leonrosselson.co.uk/ and Leon allowed us to tape this concert performance. Contains an intro about visiting Palestine through the years.
