Roger Waters releases 'Supremacy' in protest of US Jerusalem move

Waters reads out poem by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish to music composed by Palestinian group Le Trio Joubran; 'On the surface, it narrates the last speech of The Native American to The White Man, but it speaks also to Darwish's beloved Palestine, and its indigenous people, in fact to all victims of settler colonialism everywhere, always,' Waters says.

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, a vehement critic of Israel, recorded a video of himself reading out a poem by controversial Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish in protest of US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

 

 

The poem Waters recites, "The 'Red Indian's' Penultimate Speech to the White Man," is accompanied by music composed by Palestinian group Le Trio Joubran. The combined effort is titled "Supremacy."

"Le Trio Joubran and I have collaborated to perform an excerpt from an epic poem by the great Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish," Waters wrote on his Facebook page.

 

"On the surface, it narrates the last speech of The Native American to The White Man, but it speaks also to Darwish's beloved Palestine, and its indigenous people, in fact to all victims of settler colonialism everywhere, always."

 

 

In a statement of their own, Le Trio Joubran said that "We have been touring the world with our ouds for the past 15 years, taking with us—from city to city—a bit of Palestine."

 

"A long time must go by / before our present becomes history," begins the poem by Darwish, which was translated by Palestinian-American poet Dr. Fady Joudah and Roger Waters.
