English singer and songwriter Roger Waters teamed up with Palestinian group Trio Joubran to record a new song rejecting US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The song, titled Supremacy, features a few verses from The Red Indian’s Penultimate Speech to the White Man, a poem written by national poet Mahmoud Darwish, and sung by the former Pink Floyd singer over oud music of the Nazareth-based Palestinian band.
Trio Joubran said in a statement that Trump’s declaration endangers Palestinians in Jerusalem as they are being pushed out of there.
We have been touring the world with our ouds for the past 15 years, taking with us � from city to city � a bit of Palestine, the band said in a joint statement.
