The international funk party rocked until 1 am in Beit Sahour Saturday night attracting a mixed crowd of internationals and Palestinians. The event was held as a charity gig in order to raise money for the people of Lebanon after the devestating war with Israel.
The Funk gig, featuring DJ Jimmifondu (supported by DJ Frubias Bandersnatch) was a phenominal success. Tracks ranged from traditional funk, world music and Arabic tunes.
The Beit Sahour YMCA generously donated a number of "Free Palestine" t-shirts and these helped raise funds; people donating whatever they liked for one.
All in all, the gig managed to raise 936 shekels and all profits will be donated to the Save Beruit campaign.
Bethlehem ghetto hopes to see more events like this in the future: people from different backgrounds united in their desire for a better world and getting funky on the dance floor.
