Singer-songwriter George Totari fled Palestine during Israel’s 1967 war and founded the political band Kofia in Sweden. Bringing the sounds and struggles of the Palestinian people to a grassroots music scene, the Kofia story is nothing short of remarkable. Their revolution is unfinished and their songs still reverberate.
