Syria, Austria

:: Orwa Saleh - oud

Syrian Links is a continuation of several existing Syrian-Austrian projects. Ammo and Saleh embellish the Arabic-Kurdish music of their homeland with the input of several Austrian and European musicians. Together they keep memories alive while fostering peaceful prospects for the future. They tell their stories, turning their personal sense of unease and bewilderment into musical expression. Their shared experiences become a source of energy. “The sound of our music is stronger than the terrible noise of war,” says Salah Ammo.

It’s a project of hope – not just for Syria. This is no cry help, but a resounding appeal for more dignity and humanity on all levels.
