As part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival’s Port Cities project, we introduce Slow Listening, an invitation to stop and tune in to the sounds of the cities around us.

The identity and culture of a Port City creates a distinctive sound. In Liverpool, the distant ships’ horns, seagulls and the sounds of the River Mersey create a backdrop to daily life in the city. Each port city has its own sound, which helps to provide insight to its character.

Listen to the sounds of Liverpool, Alexandria, Tripoli, Casablanca and Tunis from wherever you are. Whether you are in Liverpool or any of the other participating cities, or on the east coast of America, or the West coast of Africa, tune into the sounds of Port Cities to hear how it shapes their culture and identity.
