Born and raised as a national in the sleepy desert of Kuwait; a place not chosen but profoundly embraced, Qaddoumi, endowed with voice, melody and word, confronts the curious child within and tackles the quest for identity through Dust Bathing, “like a bird without water does with sand”.

Qaddoumi’s hybrid Palestinian, Lebanese and Scottish upbringing makes up a stream of conscious questions and discoveries. This syncopated compilation is dynamic, personal and relatable.

Welcome to Dust Bathing, a reflection of a world of songbirds, who, like Qaddoumi, are attempting to grasp the meaning of home.
