The harsh reality had stolen their favourite playground from them, and some of his friends had stopped venturing out too far into the mountains. But nothing could stop Firas from being curious about what’s on the other side. He knew the risks, but he didn’t quite give a # about them. To him, encountering a soldier on patrol would have been a game of hide-and-seek, except that this time, if they catch you, you’re #ed.
All walls that separated the people had been broken down on the dance floor. Because when the music peaked and the heavy beats dropped, no one remembered the unimportant stuff like nationalities and languages and religions. They were all one, and they wanted to do was to dance and be #ing happy.
That’s the thing: many of us have heard, or even said the phrase, “Music unites us”. But really, how many of us have truly felt this firsthand? Firas’ story and the birth of Psytrance in Palestine is a shining example of this. It shows us that the true human spirit is stronger than all the forces that separate us. It shows us that we can all be moved, regardless of nationality, skin colour or last names. And music, plus some wisdom, is just one of the many ways we can start a revolution, or at least, change someone’s misunderstood view.
the story shows the unity that can be found among the people on such opposite sides when you take away all the politics of the past, in the moment, enjoying the music and the people you are around can be found all over the place.
