Male spectator:

"Marcel Khalife ... We've been listening to his songs since we were young.

His songs brought us together, to live our dreams and hopes, to feel the endurance and the resistance [of the Palestinian people].

This is the first time I attend a concert for Marcel Khalife in Syria.

Not only did I really want to come but I insisted my children come with me so they can hear the songs we used to listen when we were their age. Songs full of meaning." 

Female spectator: 

"He's a great singer with a great history. He always sings for the Palestinian cause. We are Palestinians and we love him. He always sings about our suffering as Palestinians, with beautiful music."

Female spectator:

"Every time I want to listen to songs about my homeland, I listen to Marcel. I'm from Palestine."
