With some funding from the Japanese Government to do recreational activities for kids in the camp, we (being UNRWA, no credit goes to me whatsoever) got a Danish DJ we know in Beirut to come up, along with some friends of his, to do a workshop. I thought when we went to the camp last night, we would be seeing the kids show off what they'd learned.
First we had to kick out the wedding reception, with a very young groom and bride who looked like she was struggling under her ginormous dress.
I was wrong about the kids playing. Well, there was a young rapper who was pretty cool
but otherwise it was the Danes putting on a show...3 guys on 6 turntables. It was awesome storytelling, and unfortunately cut short by the leadership.
The kids seemed to enjoy it though.
I was very impressed with the hairstyles in the audiences
and how really really ridiculously good looking some people were! :-)
