QUOTE:<br />

« Travel means connections, friends, the chance to love<br />

music even more. In Tunis, every time I go, I get to f<strong>in</strong>d<br />

books. There are no libraries <strong>in</strong> Benghazi. From my<br />

perspective <strong>and</strong> from what I hear from the people around<br />

me, you come back as a different person every time you go,<br />

even if you go for 5 days. We need to do someth<strong>in</strong>g here to<br />

make culture the basis of change <strong>in</strong> this society. »<br />

Faraj Alsileeni<br />

drummer <strong>and</strong> Director,<br />

Tanarout, Benghazi*<br />
