Music Concert by Ayman Jarjour and Maya Youssef in support of Syrian Refugees
Saturday 27th June 2020 7:00 PM
Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees presents Ayman Jarjour and Maya Youssef. Internationally-renowned Syrian classical guitarist Ayman Jarjour has performed worldwide, including at Carnegie Hall in New York, and studied in Madrid and at the Juilliard. Ayman returns to Sevenoaks with a varied programme including Classical, Spanish, Latin, Modern and Syrian music. Maya Youssef is hailed as ‘queen of the qanun,’ (BBC) the 78-stringed Middle Eastern plucked zither. For her, the act of playing music is the opposite of death and destruction; it is a life- and hope-affirming act and an antidote to what is happening, not only in Syria, but in the whole world. Her debut album ‘Syrian Dreams’ was highly acclaimed around the world and has led to her performing on prestigious stages such as the BBC Proms and receiving a number of prestigious awards including her highest honour, the Year 6 class of Dalmain Primary School in London being named ‘Youssef’ in recognition of her inspirational work.
