Shokran, Merci! Playlist by Rosa Pérez

13 April '18

Dear all,

Today is my last day at The Arab British Centre after three wonderful years working here and almost five since I set foot in this incredible building for the first time. I have learnt loads since then, professionally and personally. I feel blessed to have been able to work in what I love surrounded by the most fantastic people and I am very grateful for everyone I have met along the way.

With this playlist, I would like to say a huge THANK YOU! Or as 1,2,3 Soleils would shout after their performance of Abdel Kader, Live at Bercy in 1999: SHOKRAN, MERCI!

These are some of the great tunes that have accompanied me and the ones around me during these three years, inside and outside the office (hence the 4 hours of music :).

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and that they take you into beautiful journeys and make you dance.

Until our paths cross again,

Salam and warmest wishes,

Rosa Pérez
