  1. Fee Thikra Al Milad el Eshreen - 20th anniversary
    I challenge .. No, my future
    I will return with resolve and confidence
    I hope one day to return
    to my beloved homeland
    to the flowers and roses
    I no longer fear their power
    I will return
    
    Of the old ones now passed on
    But it's their blood our hearts are pumping
    They will walk with us when we return to their 
    towns
    Whose names will live again
    
    You see that we are rising our day is surely 
    coming
    No longer in the shadows
    Of the ghosts of Deir Yassin
    You see that we are rising
    You know the fear is gone
    We will return
    
    You see that we are rising our day is surely 
    coming
    We are no longer in the shadows
    Of the ghosts of Deir Yassin
    
    You see that we are rising our day is surely 
    coming
    No longer in the shadows
    Of the ghosts of Deir Yassin

    Playing intimate gigs in Sydney Brisbane, Melbourne and Byron Bay, showcasing her signature performance style and powerful words. “Rafeef’s poetry demands to be heard. She is powerful, emotional and political” says Ken Loach of her poetry.

    Rafeef uses language to narrate, inspire and pull apart stereotypes. Her poems We Teach Life, Sir https://youtu.be/aKucPh9xHtM and Shades of Anger https://youtu.be/m2vFJE93LTI went viral online within days of their release. Her new album, released in November 2015, features an exciting blend of poetry and music, which she brings to the stage with special guest musician Phil Monsour and others.
