Jowan Safadi, an Israeli Palestinian, is a well-known musician in the Middle East and a true free spirit. With his band Fish Samak he has built up a large fan base. Their songs range from the political and social to the emotional and philosophical. Jowan is unafraid to speak his mind or tackle taboo subjects, and his lyrics, at once penetrating and witty, have also courted controversy on several occasions. Investigated by Israeli police for "inciting terrorism", his last tour to Jordan ended with his arrest and an overnight stay in a Jordanian prison cell. But this is just the beginning - standing for co-resistance instead of co-existence and criticizing the stubborn society he lives in, Jowan struggles for his ideals - at any price.
