I remember beautiful days, beautiful hours, very beautiful places. The Tigris, the boats, the fish. I can't forget that I was born in Baghdad and I am an Iraqi. – Elias Shasha.
When Majid Shokor escaped from Iraq, he discovered that the songs he loved as a child in Baghdad have a hidden history. Saddam Hussein's regime purged Iraqi music of its origins, but Majid learns the truth as he travels the world to meet exiled Iraqi musicians – Jewish, Muslim and Christian – who still sing and play these songs. They are reunited in a joyful concert at London's Barbican Centre, where music and culture are bridges that transcend religion and politics.
ATOM has also produced a study guide for On the Banks of the Tigris: The Hidden Story of Iraqi Music. This study guide is available for download here.
