Roula Said is a singer, dancer, actor and wordsmith of Palestinian heritage. She has been a devotee and teacher of bellydance for 30 years, fascinated by its ancestral feminine wisdom and her love for Middle Eastern music. As a vocalist, Roula fronts the Juno-Nominated Arabic-Gypsy-Funk band, Nomadica, and has recently received a playwright's grant to complete 40 Days, a one-woman show telling her story in song, movement and word to her father (who died when she was 40 Days old). Further to her music and dance performances, Roula has appeared in numerous films and theatre produc­tions over the years.
