On Saturday 22nd July, we hosted the London Syrian Ensemble, who are a collective of some of Syria’s finest musicians. The Ensemble includes both newly arrived and long-term UK residents who either studied or taught in the eminent Damascus Conservatoire. They bring the sounds of Syria through a diverse repertoire of classical and traditional music. The ensemble includes oud, kanun, ney, violin, viola, double bass and percussion.
It was a phenomenal evening which everyone enjoyed, accompanied by delicious Syrian food.
