Recorded in East Jerusalem on the 9th January 2012 during sunset in a spot at the City of David, facing the Arab village of Silwan, in the outskirts of the Old City. With a predominantly Palestinian population, nowadays Silwan is under Israeli jurisdiction. Regarded as an important archaeological site, this area is situated just at the East side of the 1949 Armistice Demarcation Line (Green Line). The international community considers Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem as illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.

Originally published on the digital compilation “Somewhere on the Edge”, 100th release by the German label Gruenrekorder.

Digital download includes two high-resolution images.
