SHOREDITCH, U.K. - Feb. 6, 2020 - PRLog -- The Delia Arts Foundation, the organisation providing the tools, infrastructure, and resources for musicians in regions where opportunities are scarce, has just announced the launch of the Delia Sessions, a regular music show featuring Palestinian musicians, starting with Rola Milad Azar. The Delia Arts Foundation is a non-profit organisation working with musicians in conflict zones, and works with artists from conflict high-poverty regions and marginalised communities for the Delia Sessions. The first series of the Delia Sessions features Palestinian musicians singing primarily traditional Arabic songs in an intimate, acoustic concert setting shot in various cities of Palestine. The Delia Sessions music videos are available on YouTube and on the Delia Arts Foundation's website. The recordings of the sessions will be available on all streaming platforms shortly after each release.

The Delia Arts Foundation aims at creating positive change in the lives of musicians and their communities, while promoting the values of peace, tolerance, creativity and humanity. The Delia Sessions are a series of new acoustic music videos which will cover popular and traditional Arabic songs with modern arrangements, and will be performed by artists from Rola Milad Azar to Milad Fatouleh and Lina Sleibi. The Delia Arts Foundation launched the Delia Sessions to bring attention to the beautiful culture of the Palestinian region and to change the stereotypes most people have from reading the headlines about the country.

Founded in 2018 by John Keating, a songsmith, producer, and philanthropist also known as Johno, the Delia Foundation's vision is to promote world peace through the arts by initiating and supporting projects that connect various communities and create a mutual creative language.

"Inspired by NPR's Tiny Desk, and similar live session videos, we wanted to bring this great vibe and opportunity to Palestine", says Johno, founder of the Delia Arts Foundation. "These wonderfully vibrant and charismatic artists are eager to have their voices and stories heard, and producing something as subtle and modern as these sessions makes them all the more accessible to a global audience."

The first video of the Delia Sessions features Rola Milad Azar, a 27 years old independent singer and musician from Nazareth and living in Jerusalem, who sings in musical concerts and festivals throughout the world. In the video, Rola sings Ya Mayla Alghossoun and Almaya Almaya, and discusses the condition of being a musician and living off your own music in Palestine.
