Bedouine originalBedouine was born in Syria, moved to Saudi Arabia as a child, and then eventually found her way to the United States – her first self-titled album explored that part of her story.  Now with her second disc Bird Songs of a Killjoy, she has written a song about the section of Los Angeles where she has lived for the last decade – Echo Park.  She talks about that, the many bird metaphors on the new record, as well as performs live.
