Shebab, the last song!
At around 1am, the Arab poets left the stage and the occidental musicians took their place. First off was Mitchell, an extrovert from Tennessee who seemed to be a regular here, and whose covers of Bob Dylan & Bob Marley incited the crowd to a bastardised accompaniment.
The night then end with Rebecca & Sam, two faces that I had seen around the University, playing good ol’ English folk. The night ended with the Syrians present requesting Dolly Parton’s Jolene, before hijacking the lyrics in Kurdish.
Yalla, Rebecca & Sam! were the final shouts.
