Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh finds freedom in music
Issued on: Modified:
When the Syrian uprising began six years ago, Damascus-born clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh couldn't score a single note. Now, on his most recent album “Songs For Days To Come”, Kinan has not only found his voice but is giving resonance to the sounds of Syrian poets in exile. He won a Grammy this year as part of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble. And tours the world with his Arabic-jazz ensemble “Hewar”. Kinan joins us in the studio.
